Update: The release has been delayed as too many fake BBM apps sprung up on the respective app stores. BlackBerry said they will launch once all IP and malware issues have been sorted out.
BlackBerry’s effort to extend its messaging service beyond its own failed hardware has finally come to fruition. After some awkward false starts, plus a detailed leak, BlackBerry Messenger apps for iOS and Android will soon be available for download at the respective app stores, allowing members of those more popular ecosystems to do what they are doing on other apps already, except now through BlackBerry’s BBM servers.
From Saturday, 21 September the BlackBerry Messenger app will be available on Android, and the very next day it will hit iOS.
Would you consider using BBM on any other device than a BlackBerry?
