The New BBM Lets You Make Free Voice Calls Over Wi-Fi

By Casey Chan on at

The last vestige of BlackBerry in the modern world, BBM, has a slick new feature that could stave off the overpopulation of BlackBerry's in recycling bins and possibly please the few suit-wearing keyboard lovers left: the new BBM 7.0 has something called BBM Voice, a feature that basically offers free voice calling over Wi-Fi.

BBM is more than just super fast text messaging now. And it's a sign that the folks at RIM aren't crying mayday just quite yet. [Market Watch via The Verge]
