Pre-WWDC 2009: BeeJive 3.0 to launch by next week

Beejive IM

Jeez. Here I am sitting at E3 2009, a full week before Apple’s WWDC event, yet news from the latter has already started trickling in.

We probably could have assumed as much, but we just got word that BeeJive is planning to launch version 3.0 of their popular iPhone IM application just in the time for next week’s festivities. The fact that it’s coming and is a “significant upgrade” is about all we know for sure at this point, though it’s probably safe to assume two things: it’ll be a free update (as past releases have been), and it’ll make use of background notifications and other iPhone OS 3.0 specific goodies.

Expect more details on this soon.
