AOL has introduced AIM Express, a new Flash-based web version of its AIM service, enabling users to chat with friends and family without needing to install software. AIM Express offers users a clean design and a richer Web-based instant messaging experience with easy access to their buddies from nearly anywhere.
AOL also announced the availability of AIM for Windows Mobile. Users of smartphones including the Motorola Q, Samsung BlackJack and many Palm Treos can now enjoy all the best features of AIM for the desktop while on-the-go, such as status messages and buddy icons. In addition, AIM for Windows Mobile also gives users the choice of sending text messages via SMS. Advertising will be supported by Third Screen Media, Platform-Aâ€™s mobile ad serving platform and network.
