A cross-platform mobile instant messaging provider, SHAPE Services, is ready to support Facebook chat and avatars in its IM+ messenger for BlackBerry smartphones. Facebook users can exchange text instant messages with smileys, send files, log in into multiple accounts simultaneously and preview avatar images of their buddies in contact list. 

According to the company, IM+ 7.0 supports eight instant messaging services: AIM/iChat, MSN/Windows Live, Yahoo!, MySpaceIM, Jabber, ICQ, GoogleTalk, and Facebook. Also, IM+ works on all BlackBerry smartphones, and has a special version for touch-screen BlackBerry Storm.

“We’re excited about the Facebook features and are happy to give IM+ users an ability to communicate with their Facebook friends in real-time from BlackBerry,” says Igor Berezovsky, CEO of SHAPE Services.

The IM push technology in IM+ allows to exchange instant messages without keeping IM+ running, the messages get converted to emails and delivered into BlackBerry inbox thus saving the battery life, says the company.

Along with the new version release for BlackBerry, SHAPE is also adding Facebook chat and avatars in the next update of its IM+ for iPhone application.
