BBRY up 5% on reports of new devices, BBM to Windows Phone
BlackBerry stock (BBRY) is up over 5% this morning on reports of BBM heading to Windows Phone as well as rumors of a new QWERTY device. BlackBerry announced earlier today that BBM, which recently was made available on iOS and Android, will soon be arriving on some Windows Phone devices as well. Upon the release it will make BBM available across all of the major mobile platforms.
There were also reports today of a new BlackBerry 10 device with a physical keyboard set to arrive soon, only this device would also be brining back the trackpad and function keys that were lost after BlackBerry 7. BlackBerry hasn't confirmed this to be the case, but we should hear more on the rumored device along with the BlackBerry Z3 before the week is out.
