Google Talk for Blackberrys

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

The Google Talk blog announced the release of Google Talk for Blackberry devices. Since Blackberry users are usually very tied into their real-time communications device, releasing Google Talk for Blackberrys should open up a whole new user base previously untapped.

Although only available to US and Canada residents, the new GTalk application allows users to chat and still check email and use other Blackberry applications. This definitely is a step in the right direction; however, GTalk still needs some additional features such as file transfer to really make this applitcaion a contender in the IM market.
