Currently RIM has no plans to bring BBM to other platforms

We've all seen the photos, heard the hype and even had some laughs at the rumors but the fun and games are over for now. I don't mind being the killjoy on this because as fun as the rumors were, that's all they were -- rumors. Alec Saunders and Chris Smith, during a DevCon press session, dismissed the question of BBM coming to other platforms. Alec stated, "he wasn't aware of it" while Chris Smith, noted "there were no plans for it". Now, that's not to say it might not come eventually but for now this one can be laughed at -- much like those photos we saw of a gimped up Motorola Atrix running a poorly photoshopped BBM which, I won't even give the creator of the satisfaction of seeing them reposted.
