Recently here at GoodGearGuide, we were introduced to an interesting and innovative new service called Bluepulse.
Basically, Bluepulse is a very simple piece of software which allows your mobile phone to access internet messaging applications such as MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger and ICQ. Furthermore and the part that we really liked, is that Bluepulse works on almost any phone and network available across the world.
This means users don't need to subscribe to a special service or network to use this program. Simply download the software onto your phone at the Bluepulse website and follow the instructions to install; simple.
The only charges that you will incur are your phone carrier's data charges for GPRS or WAP usage. Bluepulse claims that staying online with 8 contacts for 10minutes on a messenger service using your phone is approximately 40kb of data, which isn't too shabby at all.
Look out for a full review here at GoodGearGuide very soon.
