A few months back, we reported that Trillian was going to release an Android version of their popular instant messaging application. The nearly two month wait is now over, as Trillian has just announced the availability of its first public beta release.
As of the writing, I’ve spent just a few minutes with the Trillian Beta, and though there are some UI pieces I’m not too fond of, so far I’m fairly impressed with the application overall and how easy it was to get it all set up (even though I didn’t have an account prior to today).
Those interested in downloading the beta to test it out for yourself should click on this download link from your Android phone. To learn more about Trillian’s beta before installing, head over to the Cerulean Studios blog.
Trillian requires Android 1.6 or above, so a heavy majority of users should be able to use it. As always, if you decide to try Trillian out, please let us know what you think about it in the comments. Also, expect a full review later on after we’ve had some time to play around with Trillian.
