The love is flowing as BBM prepares to make its way onto Android and iOS this weekend. #BBM4ALL is taking over and soon users on other platforms will be able to get in on all the BBM fun. To help spread the word, Lewis Hamilton and the Mercedes AMG Petronas team are doing their part. As seen in a tweet from earlier this week, the Mercedes F1 cars have received a little BBM love of their own which we have to say is awesome sauce.

Don't forget to do your part and spread the word - BBM hits Android and iOS this weekend so be sure to tell all your friends and family on other platforms to download so we can keep BBM going strong!

Mercedes FTW!(Maybe next year after Vettel is retired:( )

Alonso and young drivers are just unfortunate to race in Vettels era. He's just good and he just started. I like that guy but I still root for BB and Hamilton.

<wasn't 'that' long ago the same thing was said in relation to another German driver ... named Michael Schumacher>

I'm not a huge fan of Vettel--I sat next to some rabid Vettel fans at last year's US Grand Prix--but you're absolutely right. He's in a class by himself, and since he's so young, we can expect him to dominate Formula One for perhaps the next decade. Without Vettel, we'd have an awesome fight between Hamilton, Alonso, and Kimi. The way it stands, the best they can hope for is best of the rest.

"...Mercedes F1 cars have received a little BBM love of their own which we have to saw is awesome sauce." - I don't get this sentence.

So my question now is why get a BlackBerry phone if the only thing blackberry had to offer is going cross platform FOR FREE

Posted via CB10

SkaterGuy2k

Some people rely on more of the security and communication features than the social aspect of a phone :) Thats why #IChooseBlackBerry10 :D

Jahcure

Amen!

Some people believe that a non-BES BlackBerry is secure...

SkaterGuy2k

people can believe what they want :)

naviwilliams

I certainly don't think that BlackBerry is all about BBM. The sheer security you're virtually guranteed with BlackBerry makes the world of difference... 

trinibai

We all know about blackberry and their security but if you ask majority of people what their reason for getting a BlackBerry over iPhone or Android the first thing they say is for bbm especially people who know nothing about the company

SkaterGuy2k

I dunno about that i still think most people want great reliable email devices.

I just think it will be great to use BBM on my Z10 at last - I don't have any contacts at the moment as everyone I know has jumped ship. Can't wait to get rid of whatsapp! I think, if it goes well, it will keep blackberry in the loop and maybe stop all the negativity towards them.

Me too. Got my wife and several buddies waiting. Even my sister who I use what app to communicate with will be getting bbm. Can't wait to delete whatsapp.

Posted via the best phone ever. The white Z10.

Yep already got a number of friends to download bbm, also mentioning it on my fb and twitter ac... it's like spreading the love amongst friends and fams but instead its spreading the word...

"Don't forget to do your part and spread the word - BBM hits Android and iOS this weekend so be sure to tell all your friends and family on other platforms to download so we can keep BBM going strong!" looks like BlackBerry is once again relying on users to do the marketing for them... we saw how well that worked so far. . .

Wooohooo. Kick ass BBM

Bridge on BB10 just got an update for BBM support on the PlayBook!!!!

Posted via CB10

scalemaster34

What the PlayBook needed was a BBM app. I know they can't do a native BBM app, but a copy of the Android version to run on the Android Player would be fine. Let's hope it will work sideloaded.....

bambinoitaliano

Bridge app got updated for BB10 devices. Now we can use BBM on playbook with Z10!!

BerryRipe

This seriously looks like BBM is going to be a seperate company after all or was that already official?

nosaku

I am calling all my friends and family members who have Andriod phones and iPhones and explaining them about BBM and it's advantages. As of now all of them seem to be interested about this app. Hopefully they all will download and keep using it. It was surprising that they don't know about "security" as of now and when I explained the same they were quite astonished.

buckwylder

Of course the best and most authentic way to fully enjoy BBM is by upgrading to a BlackBerry 10 device!

All my WhatsApp contacts are getting my ultimatum tomorrow. If they want to contact me they will have to install BBM because I am un installing WhatsApp. I BlackBerry gets it together and voice and video calling goes crossplatform, I will do the same with my Skype contacts. I am crossing my fingers they tested this thoroughly and don't screw this up. The press is not exactly complimenting it
