BlackBerry has announced that BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) version 7.0.1,which features voice chatting over a Wi-Fi connection, is now available for BlackBerry smartphones running the BlackBerry 5 OS. BBM version 7.0.1 with BBM Voice is a fast, convenient, and inexpensive way to stay connected with friends, family and colleagues, and can be downloaded from the BlackBerry World storefront. Here's more info:

The response to BBM version 7 with BBM Voice has been tremendous. Since its launch in December for BlackBerry smartphones running the BlackBerry 6 OS and higher, more than 50 million BBM Voice calls have been made.

Other features are available in BBM 7 with BBM Voice:

. Multi-tasking with Split-screen feature - Customers can do more while they talk, such as check other BBM text chats, check email, or navigate to other apps while engaged on a BBM Voice call. They can start a call in an instant, and switch between texting and talking, or text and talk at the same time. They can also for example, send a picture to a contact while they are talking with them.
. Clear Visual Indicator - Customers can see when contacts are available for a voice call.
. Convenient Compatibility with Accessories - Customers can use their favorite accessories, such as a Bluetooth or wired headset, or use their BlackBerry smartphone's speakerphone.
. Simple BlackBerry ID Synchronization - Customers can set up BBID to link their BBM profile, Groups and Contacts with the BBID for easy backup and restore. BBID is required for BBM Voice and this can be set up when upgrading. The data will also carry over when they move to BlackBerry 10.
