BlackBerry to Add
Google Talk - Local and Apple Mac Synchronization
The BlackBerry has become very popular recently, and the maker of the
device now plans to add new features by partnering with Google and an
Apple accessory maker. Research In Motion (RIM), the maker of
Blackberry, plans on offering Google Talk instant messaging, Google
Local and the ability to link its device to Apple computers for free.
Blackberry owners will be able to add a new version of the Google Talk
instant messaging program, and also download a free program to
synchronize their device with their Apple computers. The Google Talk
will be released in spring.
Users will probably love the new Google Local feature that can be
downloaded right now. This offers users the ability to search for local
businesses. It will also give them access to maps and satellite images.
According to the RIM press release ”Google Talk for BlackBerry is easy
and intuitive to use. After downloading Google Talk for BlackBerry,
users can quickly sign in through their Gmail™ username and password,
access their existing Google Talk contact lists, see which Google Talk
Friends are online, and send and receive instant messages.”
Information Appliance Associates will be providing a program allowing
synchronization of the Blackberry and Macintosh computers. The program
will be downloadable in February for free. This will allow Mac users to
synchronize their calendar, e-mail, address book and other data between
the computer and device. Previously Blackberry owners needed to pay
$29.95 for the PocketMac program that did the same thing.
