Nimbuzz, who recently won the ‘Connect on BlackBerry’ award at RIM’s BlackBerry Alliance Program’s EMEA Innovation Awards in Rome, has released a native IM Client for the BlackBerry. They released a version back in 2008, but have significantly updated.

The native functionality allows Nimbuzz to run in the background. You can have alert notifications pushed to your
BlackBerry device’s home screen and sync the notifications with your
phone’s sound profiles.

Nimbuzz supports Skype, Windows Live Messenger, Google Talk, Yahoo! Messenger, Facebook, MySpace and more. The new Nimbuzz will work on all BlackBerry devices running OS v4.6 and higher. Get it now from App World here.
