BlackBerry may be falling faster than a suicide jumper, but that hasn’t stopped the company from going full steam ahead with its cross platform BlackBerry Messenger applications.
The BBM for Android application has been delayed, despite being supposed to hit about an hour ago. No reason were given for the delay, but there has been plenty of fake applications hitting the Play Store.
While Android users eagerly await BlackBerry Messenger for Android to go live, BlackBerry Messenger for iPhone has begun rolling out to users in New Zealand, where it is tomorrow already. BBM for Android has seemingly been pulled due to notification problems, but that hasn’t stopped the app’s APK from leaking, much to the delight of a multitude of users. BBM for iPhone has however begun rolling out at 12:01AM tomorrow as the time is reached in the certain time zones. Oh the irony.
BBM has long been an icon in the instant messaging market, but has lost a huge market share as users departed from the company’s mobile platforms in Cavour of the likes of Android and iOS.
