By now, you've no doubt heard the rumors of BlackBerry Messenger arriving on iOS come April 26. The issue was raised in the forums while many people have stated they'd love to see it happen -- in this case, it's just simply not true. As you all can tell by looking at the posts from yesterday we never made mention of it despite the forums and our poor email inboxes filling up with tips of the news. Having taken the time to reach out to RIM we can confirm the following:
RIM did not hold a conference in Toronto this week and Jim Balsillie did not speak at any event in Toronto this week.
As much as some would like to see BlackBerry Messenger span across different OS platforms, it's just not happening yet. Not to say it couldn't some day but April 26th is not the time. We couldn't in good faith, post such a rumor without being able to confirm it or at the very least have good reason to believe it to be true. This is common across all of our posts, if we're not posting something that appears to be popping up everywhere else, we have good reason for it. As it turns out, this one -- is complete BS.
