BlackBerry to include AOL, Yahoo IMs

By Derek Sooman on
New services on their way from BlackBerry include instant messaging offerings from Yahoo and America Online. In the future, it seems that Blackberries will come loaded with Yahoo IM software. Yahoo Messenger users will have full wireless access to their contacts and will be able to carry on multiple chat sessions. Meanwhile, AOL Instant Messenger and ICQ services are also coming to Blackberry, with users getting access to their AOL Buddy List feature or ICQ contact list for chatting on both networks. No word yet on exactly when this will happen, though.
