It looks like the incredibly cool new Blackberry Messenger app will be making its way to all devices running OS 5.0.

Up until now the new BBM had only been seen on the BlackBerry Onyx, but BGR has been playing around with OS 5.0 on a Curve 8900, and says it came packing all the great new features. New to the app are GPS location integration and proximity sensor so you know when you are near friends, avatar support, home screen contacts and threaded SMS.

But best of all, given the slick new interface, you won't feel like you are sending a message from 2004 every time you open it. [BGR via CrackBerry]

this looks pretty good. I don't own a blackberry but always seem to fiddle around with BBM with girls that do. But really whats the use of unlimited text messaging if you're raping the BBM? oh and yes its pretty stalkerish. "Why don't you reply? you read my message?!"

But then again some may not have the unlimited text package that came FREE with the cheapest data plan that Rogers offers. Pay as you go?
