IAnywhere's new mobile IM system will ship by the second quarter and will also be available as a standalone offering. Get ready for some mobile IM on your BlackBerry.The new mobile IM system is designed to work with smartphones running on the BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Palm, and Symbian operating systems.
