BlackBerry excited plenty of ex-BlackBerrians on Tuesday when they announced that they would be bringing their popular instant messaging application, BBM to the likes of iOS and Android devices this summer, but one thing remained unclear; would tablets be supported?

Take a look at our range of BlackBerry Q10 accessories, now available for purchase!

BlackBerry made an odd announcement on Wednesday that excited plenty of ex-BlackBerry users that chose to adopt the likes of Android and iOS powered devices, BlackBerry Messenger would be coming to the two platforms, better yet, it would be completely free. As soon as the announcement was made, Twitter trends and headlines started changing, discussions ignited; would BlackBerry Messenger be coming to tablets as well? Well, the short answer seems to be no. BlackBerry’s Vivek Bhardwaj has said that tablet support for the application is pretty low on the agenda over in Waterloo.

He did however hint at it coming soon, possibly to more than just tablets when he said; “I think when you look at things like Smart TVs and desktops, those are definitely areas for exploration.” What do you think big B has up their sleeves? Let us know below!
