America Online and RIM to deliver AOL Instant Messaging and ICQ via BlackBerry
Posted on 14-Mar-2005 20:54 | Tags Filed under: News



Research In Motion (RIM) and America Online, Inc. have announced that RIM will support the mobile AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) and ICQ services on the BlackBerry wireless platform. RIM has also worked with AOL to give BlackBerry users easy access to the mobile AOL Mail service.

With the branded and full color mobile AIM or ICQ instant messaging interface, BlackBerry users will have quick and easy access to their AOL Buddy List feature or ICQ contact list to see which of their friends and family members are online and available to chat. BlackBerry users will be able to send and receive instant messages (IMs) over both the AIM and ICQ networks. Mobile IMs will be transmitted to and from the BlackBerry handheld, notifying users of new messages quickly and seamlessly.

In addition to Instant Messaging services, AOL Mail service members will gain the flexibility of accessing their e-mail service via BlackBerry.

The AIM and ICQ services for BlackBerry will be available from AOL authorized carriers. Users should check with their carrier for availability and pricing.
