Google Talk is set up to run in the background and operates similar to BBM, except its a user name instead of a pin number. Its sweet, and operates cross platform :)

GTalk is a great app and I have a few people on my contacts list that I used BBM with. An android messenger would be awesome though.

BBM is pretty useless since it is closed. Now before you jump all over me for saying that it's true. If you don't have a Blackberry you are out of luck. Why not incorporate other IM clients such as AIM and Gtalk into it. Wouldn't hurt Blackberry.

But in a way the other IM clients are closed themselves gtalk doesn't incorporated yahoo into it. I'm just saying sometimes it feels good to have something that nobody else has

Not when you are the only one with a Blackberry. ;) Anyone can install Gtalk or AIM onto their device. That's what I'm trying to get at. Now if Blackbery offered BBM to other devices, then we can talk. :p

I agree 100% and had been a hardcore BB fan for years. The lack of support of BBM on other devices is rather unattractive. Take that away from BlackBerry's and take away push email on all email services, and the UI is way out dates and not very awesome.

I don't see this as a big issue, yes gtalk could use attachments but android im client is not a good idea. IM is not that serious, I feel googles time could be better spent. In other areas

I think the fact that bbm is exclusive to blackberries is what makes it so special. And after watching the demo for the new web browser on crackberry.com I think blackberries are gonna have a lot more to offer then just email and bbm.
