Since the initial announcement of BlackBerry Messenger's arrival on Android and iOS there has been plenty of dates tossed around. BlackBerry has made no secret about their plans to have it arrive at some point in the 'summer' but at the BlackBerry Q5 launch event in India, Sunil Lalvani, managing director, BlackBerry India, may have dropped a little bit more of a defined timeframe. Here's the exact wording from IBNLive:
"The service is coming to Android this summer. But summer as per North America, where it remains till September." When asked if that means that BBM for Android would be available before the end of September, his response was in the affirmative.
Nothing that couldn't have been pretty much assumed really but I digress. In any case, we'll see BlackBerry Messenger on iOS and Android by the end of summer, it's pretty much just a matter of time.
