Research in Motion hasn’t officially unleashed BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 on the public yet, but we know it’s coming. Now the folks at CrackBerry have snagged some screenshots of the new messenger app.

BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 will likely be released when BlackBerry OS 6.1 comes out. It will have new icons, and color options, allowing you to change colors for contacts and individual chats.

Word on the street is that the app also features tighter integration with Twitter, better file sharing, and other new features.

BlackBerry Messenger is one of the killer features that have kept many people coming back to BlackBerry, allowing users to send instant messages, text, and other data to other users without accruing SMS fees.
