BlackBerry Messenger Coming on iPhone April 26
Posted by ipodrohan
BlackBerry Messenger for iOS devices to be released on April 26 in App Store. BBM will be having a new notification system as reported by Rihanna at the MacRumors forum.
RIM had a Social Media conference today in Toronto, and my entire college business and marketing class was invited to the event. RIM’s co-ceo Jim Balsillie revealed that they plan to bring BBM and “other services” to iPhone on April 26 via the app store. Balsillie also revealed that they plan to release an update to the app this summer which will take advantage of a new “notification system”!
Android and iOS users will have limited features in BBM like they can communicate with anyone who has a smartphone using BBM, but they might not be able to share photos, location, or videos as full features are only be available with BlackBerry smartphone users. It is anticipated that RIM may be charging users a one-time fee or even a recurring fee for access to its BBM service on third-party platforms.
