BBM BlackBerry Messenger 6 screenshotGLOBAL – The long awaited update to BlackBerry Messenger is scheduled for release with the new BlackBerry OS6.1. The new BBM app will be graphic driven, with more user controls over the graphics.

Some will be excited by this, once again, RIM is trying to catch up to the Android and iPhone with regard to more user friendly interfaces.

There may be a leaked version of BBM 6.0 in the wild. It is not functional; don’t waste your time on it.

From information gathered so far, it looks like this will be a cosmetic upgrade to enhance the user experience. The ability to assign photos and colors to contacts and conversations may be important to some users, clarifying message strings and visual confirmation of the contact.

The screenshot above demonstrates the look and feel of the new BBM, with the menu shown to select colors.
