Is Blackberry Messenger just an IM client? What makes it so much better than Skype's IM for example?

It is. But RIM's BBM uses RIM's servers - data is compressed which is good for speed and your allowance/bill. BBM will work as fast on a crap GPRS connection as Skype on 3G.
Unlike Skype, it also is a tad more secure/private
And since it's integrated into the BB OS it's probably a bit more reliable, too.
Disadvantage is obviously that skype is available on a lot more handsets.
