Thorsten Heins

While speaking in Jakarta on Thursday, RIM CEO Thorsten Heins talked a bit about BBM and what's in store down the road for the messaging service on BlackBerry 10. BBM has always been the go-to for BlackBerry users to setup groups, chat with family and friends and even send files, but soon there may be even more. Thorsten said that RIM is always trying to improve BBM, making it "a very strong platform not just for communication", and noting that Indonesia has always been an innovation ground for RIM.

Heins went on to say "Think about transacting money. This is one element in which you could have a huge BBM population in Indonesia transferring money from one partner to another". From the sounds of it we could see something like mobile transfers through BBM at some point down the road, making for "enhanced communication activities". He didn't get into much detail beyond that, stating "I want to keep a few surprises for the Indonesian consumer as well".

What do you think - would money transfers over BBM be someting you'd want? What other cool features would make BBM even awesomer? Sound off in the comments!
