BlackBerry's BBM officially coming to Android and iOS

Blackberry has finally announced that BBM will be available to Android and iOS users this summer. There is pretty much nothing to say about BBM, one thing is that Blackberry might lose sales on their devices as BBM is one of the main reasons why people buy BBM.

“It’s time to bring BBM to a greater audience, no matter what mobile device they carry.”

Blackberry’s CEO, Thorsten Heins, said in the announcement. This statement is not 100% true actually, the app will support Android devices with Android 4.0 or higher and iOS 6 or higher, which is not exactly equal to “no matter what mobile device they carry”.

We would definitely like to see what Blackberry offers with these apps, tough they say it will be a ‘fully featured’ BBM experience.

Will Blackberry continue to be in the race of Instant Messaging? Tell us your thoughts in comments!
