Kik seems to not given up hope on BlackBerry, even despite RIM suing them. They have sent out e-mails to some past Kik messenger users letting them know there is a new version for BlackBerry. The 5.0 version brings the same Kik messenger capabilities, but with a slightly updated UI. The updated version is currently in beta, but Kik says it will release publicly soon.

Although, we know where you can get it from. Shhh, keep it a secret, but you can download it here. We’ll be sure to update you once Kik is release publicly and if it gets accepted into App World.
