Over 40 Million iOS and Android users now on BBM!
One of the informational tidbits to drop in this morning's BlackBerry Earnings Report was in regard to BBM. Specifically, the company stated how many non-BlackBerry users are now using messaging service:
Messaging: Over 40 million newly registered iOS/Android users in the last 60 days; more than a dozen Android OEMs to preload BBM, including most recently LG; over 250,000 BBM Channels created by global user base since launch of BBM Channels on BlackBerry, including large brands such as Coke Indonesia and USA Today; BBM is the most secure mobile messaging service for use in regulated enterprises
40 Million is big number and a solid base from BBM to continue to build on. Hopefully we'll see new features in 2014, along with a continued push to market and grow the base. I'd sure love to live in a world where everybody was rocking BBM on their phones. The strategy to include BBM devices out of the box on Android handsets should go a long way to that goal too.
