BlackBerry had announced it’s intentions to introduce its wildly popular messenger service to the Android and iOS platforms earlier this year. We’ve been hearing rumors of a late summer release and if our sources are to be trusted, the application will see a release in the coming weeks on both the platforms. Ahead of the release, screenshots from the Android build of the application have been leaked online.
Not only is BlackBerry testing the application internally, it is also looking at inviting selected BBM users to test out the application. The leaked screenshots of the Android build indicate that the app is functionally complete and is undergoing testing to detect and fix bugs. The advent of cross platform BBM would obliterate one of the most popular reasons for users to stick to a BlackBerry device. It’ll be interesting to see how the troubled smartphone manufacturer spins this in its favor.
