BlackBerry Blend v1.2 update rolling out

BlackBerry Blend v1.2 has been available for Beta Zone users for some time and in early June it was announced that it would be available to everyone soon enough. Today, an update to Blend has arrived for BlackBerry 10, Android as well as iOS. It brings with it a new Dashboard design and UI, as well as the ability to reply to BBM and SMS messages directly from notification pop-ups.

The updated version of BlackBerry Blend is showing as v1.2.1.74 through BlackBerry World. An update to the desktop portion doesn't seemed to have rolled out yet but hopefully that will show up soon as that's where you'll see the changes.
