BlackBerry CMO expects BBM to launch on Android and iOS 'within days'
Earlier today it was revealed that BlackBerry will be heading to print media to clear up some of the headline misconceptions we've been hearing over the last few weeks. Part of the letter includes a note that cross-platform BBM is still very much a reality.
As the letter states:
We are bringing the most engaging mobile messaging platform to all, with our BBM launch for Android and iPhone.
There are already around six million customers pre-registered to be notified of our roll out. This number is growing every day, and speaks to the tremendous opportunity we have to expand BBM beyond BlackBerry smartphones to make it the world’s largest mobile social network.
In addition, BlackBerry CMO Frank Boulben spoke with Reuters and also added that he expects the launch of BBM "within days". He notes that the original issues have been sorted out so it's likely we'll see a release any day now. BBM was originally set to launch over three weeks ago but was pushed back due to various issues.
So once again - fingers crossed that cross-platform BBM isn't too far off. For real this time.
