It's called "instant messaging," not "sometime in the not so distant future messaging" for a reason. The whole point of IM is to let you ping friends, family and co-workers with a quick question, a quick answer... or perhaps a witty bon mot, when an email is not required and a phone call might be too intrusive. IM seems tailor-made for the BlackBerry. Wherever you are, you can still be online on your favorite IM service and friends, family and co-workers can reach you with a quick question, a quick answer... or that witty bon mot.
