If you’ve been looking for BBM on your desktop and are tired of waiting for a solution from RIM, give Fixmo Web Messenger a try today.
Just a few days ago me and a few other bloggers were talking about how RIM should really release a desktop client for BBM, letting us chat it up through our desktops or laptops. We already know that RIM uses it internally but what about us?
Well Fixmo has designed a web application in conjunction with an on device app that does exactly that, gives us BBM on our computers. The system works by making a bridge between your BlackBerry and your computer letting you see whats happening on the big screen. The app is currently in beta but can be downloaded for free from fixmo.com/fwm.
