We've been hearing rumors about the release of cross-platform BBM for the last few days, and it looks like the date may have just been pinned down. The T-Mobile UK Twitter account this morning let the world know that BBM will be coming to Android and iOS devices on June 27th.

Now we're not sure if this is an epic slip by Tmo or if we can count it as fact, but regardless it looks very promising that BBM may go cross-platform in just a few weeks.
