BlackBerry users are getting a little more love these days. It hasn't been long since Opera Mini 4 Beta became compatible with the BlackBerry platform. Now The Gizmo Project, a free, all-in-one IM and VoIP client mash-up originally built for the desktop, has opened its doors to BlackBerrys too.
Here's what's in it for Gizmo Project Mobile Beta users--IMing other Gizmo, Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, and Google Talk users from your phone, plus free calls to fellow Gizmos.
Outbound VoIP calls to landlines and other mobile phones represent Gizmo Project's premium mobile service, and may be less expensive than your carrier's rates, especially if you've overrun your minutes. Then again, they may not be, especially if your carrier levies a surcharge for Internet use. It's a good idea to check before buying credit.
Get Gizmo for Mobile Beta by pointing to www.gizmo5.com from the mobile browser, or select your phone model from the drop down list on the Gizmo Web site to download the file to your desktop before transferring it over to your phone.
Gizmo for Mobile Beta is also available for other phones in the U.S. and Europe, including Motorola, Palm, Pantech, and Sony Ericsson.
