AOL announced that they are going to launch a new Flash-based Web version of AIM giving users the chance to chat with friends and family without an actual install of the software.
The company says their new product offers a unique AIM experience with the software bringing a clean design with easy access. The Flash-based version comes as a response to all other IM services that are active mobile.
Looking at the Flash AIM we can find similarities in concept with the popular Mibo that enables the user to use almost any Instant Messaging software without having the actual program running. Users simply go to the website and log in.
This is basically what AIM offers but it Flash-based. Chatting will be done just by visiting a single webpage and IM chats open in new tabs so you can easily track every conversation.
AOL announced that AIM is now available for Windows Mobile. Meaning people who own a smartphone like Motorola Q, Samsung BlackJack and some versions of Palm Treo are able to use AIM and it also gives the opportunity to send SMS.
