Although it's been a long day for those waiting for cross-platform BBM and those in Waterloo working to make it all happen, there was some pretty interesting news in the status update from BlackBerry. In case you missed it, they actually added 1.1 Million users to the BBM platform without even launching the app officially. 

I'm not trying to sugarcoat it, the rollout has been a frustration and not the best experience but again, 1.1 Million users in less than 8 hours. I guess that answers the question about whether or not people are willing to give cross-platform BBM a go. Now all that needs to happen is getting it officially to the masses.
