*Update* - We've been told the tour is rolling out to the US starting in Miami and LA next week! If you see the vans be sure to let us know!
It has been a little over a week since BBM launched on Android and iOS. It got 10 million downloads within 24 hours and we know now that there are 20 million active users in its first week, on top of the current 60 million BlackBerry users. We're all spreading the word and getting all our friends and family and anyone else download BBM. To help spread the word, there's a BBM4All van making it's way around the U.K. to help promote multi-platform BBM.
A group of BBM Ambassadors have been put together to go around the U.K. to promote BBM. The tour kicked off yesterday, Monday 28th October 2013, at Liverpool University. They will be making their way around various locations for the next two weeks. They have BlackBerry devices, Android and iPhone devices to showcase BBM, including BBM Groups. They will be on hand to help people download and get started with BBM and generally making people aware that BBM is available for Android and iOS.
At the moment all locations are around England. If all goes well, hopefully we can see the tour make its way to Scotland and Wales too.
