BlackBerry has officially detailed BBM for Android release plans this morning. Aside from the availability of the app, this puts the seemingly never-ending series of rumors and leaks to rest. Basically, if you are an Android user and have been waiting for BBM -- now is the time to download, install and begin chatting.
BlackBerry is in hot water. That is, no one except BlackBerry itself. In an open letter to customers and partners published in 30 news outlets in 9 countries, the Canada-based company is basically coming out to say that it's fine and financially stable.
BlackBerry had been saying that BBM would arrive for Android users before the end of the summer. That launch was later confirmed to be September 21st, however as we saw -- that launch never happened. The 7AM launch time came and went and BlackBerry later confirmed the release plans were put on hold.
Blackberry. Well we can say goodbye officially considering we all have known this was coming for quite some time. Not to mention the earnings report last week showing nearly $1 billion in loss, things weren't looking too good. Just hitting the wires is news that BlackBerry has been acquired by a Canadian Financial company for the tune of $4.7 billion.
Blackberry regarding their popular BBM for Android. After countless leaks, fakes in the Google Play Store, and more, they've just confirmed all the details this afternoon. BBM for Android will be available globally for everyone (no exclusives) starting September 21st in the Google Play Store, then launch for iOS on the 22nd.
BBM release date rumors continue. At this point it seems likely they will continue right up until the time the app lands in the Play Store. Before that happens though, it looks like we have another post dealing with the potential release date. This latest comes by way of the Indonesian language TecknoUp who have recently shared what appears to be an invite to a BBM launch event.
BBM rumors have been heating up. The BBM for Android user manual appeared last month and that was followed by the actual app, which leaked yesterday and couldn't actually be used. Perhaps key for today though, despite the earlier confirmation coming from Samsung Nigeria, there will not be any exclusives when the app actually launches.
