RIM has finally released BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 in the BlackBerry App World -
Download BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 directly to your BlackBerry Device by visiting http://go.geekberry.net/index.php?id=82 from your BlackBerry Browser

Get into BlackBerry Messenger and express yourself – your way. Share your pin or unique barcode to connect with friends anywhere, anytime. Take comfort in knowing your friends are only a BlackBerry Messenger message away whether you want to make plans for the night or ask a quick question. Chat and share funny stories, pictures, videos and more with individual contacts or groups of friends instantly. Stay in touch like never before with BlackBerry Messenger!

As for what’s new in BlackBerry Messenger 5.0, here’s the quick summary:

    Recap of New Features:

  • Enhanced SMS -Allows for a conversational chat-like user experience with a single contact list for the most personal mobile-to-mobile communications
    • Note: BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 and later is required for the SMS functionality.
  • Avatars – Users can choose a picture from the BlackBerry Smartphone gallery and save it as their personal avatar, which will be seen by their contacts. They can also view other avatars in the contact list and zoom in on the avatars of contacts participating in a conversation by selecting “View participants.”
  • Large Media File Transfer – Users can send/receive large file transfers up to 6 megabytes for pictures, files and audio.
    • Note: BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 is required to receive large media files.
  • Enhanced Group Functionality – Allows for the ability to update, share & communicate with a subset community.
  • Bar-code Identity – A user can add a contact to the BlackBerry Messenger contact list by displaying a 2-dimensional bar code that invitees can capture with their device cameras.
  • Reliable Contact Backup and Restore – Contacts are backed-up on a server and do not require the need for BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

* Note: While BBM 5.0 will definitely work on official releases of OS 5.0, we’re not sure yet as I post this if it will work on previously leaked versions of OS 5.0. Be sure to report back in the comments if you’re having success or not, and back up your BBM contacts before upgrading. *
