BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 leaked and available now for devices running BB OS 6

BlackBerry Messenger 6BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 has been leaked and is now available for download. If you simply can't wait for BlackBerry Messenger 6 and you're running a BlackBerry OS 6 device, then you don't have to. Simply delete your current installation of BlackBerry Messenger, download BBM 6.0 from here, and install. There is one small caveat however, and that's the need for a BlackBerry Beta Zone BBM key, which seems to be required on some devices.

BBM 6.0 brings with it integration with Twitter among other social networks, plus the ability to chat with contacts while playing a game, and enhanced file sharing.

While this leak appears to have come from RIM, you're on your own if something goes wrong. So best make sure you have a solid backup before trying anything. Head on over to the BBH-Plus forums for more information.
