If you want to run BBM on your Android and iOS device then there are some hints which suggest that very soon BBM for Android & iOS shall be available on Google Play and Apple app store. This will make us able to enjoy free sms among different platforms especially between BlackBerry and Android devices.
As reported on different technology blogs like phonesreview, during the launch of the BlackBerry Q5 the managing director of BlackBerry India, Sunil Lalvani, was asked about the availability of the BBM for Android application. He confirmed that it was still on schedule to be released this summer, but when pushed for more details he said that the company is referring to how the summer falls in North America i.e. September.
When asked if that meant it would be released by the end of this month he confirmed that it would, but this may mean that the Android BBM app won’t be arriving until September 21st which is the last day of the summer.
What this could mean though is that the iOS version could be released sooner than that as we are all aware that it can take longer for app developers to release Android versions of apps, which is normally down to the various different versions of the operating system that are being used.
This September 21st date could also fit in with the release of iOS 7 though as it is widely expected to arrive in that month, so the iOS app could still be released at the same time as the Android version. The move by BlackBerry has been questioned with many wondering if it will damage the company going forward.
What is your opinion about the BBM I think this will be good that we shall be able to communicate to our BB friends. Are you going to install BBM on your smartphone?
