It seems BlackBerry also suffers from something coming prematurely, with it being their BlackBerry Messenger for iPhone and Android landing page this time around. The official landing page has prematurely been launched saying that the applications were ‘here’ when we all know they most certainly are not.
BlackBerry Messenger, BlackBerry’s most crowned jewel, is set to make its first cross platform appearance quite soon, especially if the landing page has leaked and considering summer is over on Saturday, meaning if it launches anytime after that, the company lied about launching it ‘by the end of summer.’ The landing page, which has since been removed, noted that “BBM for iPhone and Android is here” alongside links to both the Apple App Store as well as the Google Play store, both of which being broken. BBM is set to continue its PIN-based, uber-secure messaging prowess on Android and iOS after the company decided to expand their offerings to the platforms.
Rumours have been circulating that the Canadian ‘giant’ may be spinning off their BBM division into a separate, independent company, likely to be called BBM Inc.
