At last it has arrived! It's been a rocky few weeks and things certainly haven't gone quite to plan but as of now, Android users can officially download BBM for their phones running Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean. For us BlackBerry users this means we'll now have a new way to instant message our Android friends.

They might need a bit of convincing, but as BlackBerry Messenger is free to download they certainly won't have anything to lose by giving it a try. Although they won't have all the features that us BlackBerry users do (yet), let's get them educated with the 'D' & 'R' and what their new PIN means - and let them enjoy the most secure way to instant message. 

So spread the word CrackBerry nation. Use what ever means possible to contact your Android buddies and get them to download BBM. I suspect they'll soon fall in love with it, like we all have. Or send them a link to this page and they can grab BBM from the link below:
