    Discuss: RIM Confirms That BBM Will Include Video Chat in BlackBerry 10



    Today during RIM's Annual General Meeting of Shareholder's Thorsten's Heins confirmed that BBM on BlackBerry 10 will include a video chat feature. While we were hardly surprised at announcement seeing as the currently BlackBerry PlayBook has a Video Chat featured installed and the Dev Alphas being handed out also had front facing cameras, this was the first time RIM confirmed that there would be Video Chat available via BBM. While we do not know too much about the exact specifications of the two BlackBerry 10 smartphones (which are expected to be released in Q1 of 2013), we can now be certain that there will be a front facing camera on the new devices when they launch.

    I am super excited with this news. I have 69 contacts on BBM and haven't added few intentionally. If I start adding everyone I know who has BB I will probably cross the 100 mark. But Most of my friends,family and important business contacts are already on my BBM. Video chat will be extremely useful for someone like me. Don't need Skype now ahahah.
    Let's rock and roll this!!!!

    Expected, but great that its confirmed! The only thing I think RIM needs to do is also bring a desktop client out as well. It would compete with FaceTime incredibly well, no matter where I am, on the road with my BB10 device, on my couch with my playbook or at work in from of my laptop, BBM video chat has me connected!

    I like the way you think, titanjhb. Good point, a desktop version that could connect to mobile would entice others to want to use it more as well.

    I wonder if RIM would integrate BBM on Playbook and PB video chat. Would we still require two pins or just the pin on phone would suffice? Also if we can answer voice calls from playbook that would be awesome, when bridged of course.

    Excellent idea. You should mail it to RIM. They might not consider it straight away as they are laser focused on getting a fully baked BB10 into the market. But may be some thing they can develop after the big launch.
    But On the execution side, would this kind of integration of BBM to desktop and playbook cause any problems coz of BIS or NOC. I'm not a tech guy so Sorry if it's a dumb question.
    On a separate note, have Another stupid idea: why not make a laptop and desktop on QNX for enterprises alone. Completely secured, no pen drive slots or CD drives, only wifi file sharing, comes preloaded with office professional, and obviously fully integrated to playbook and phone. what do you think?
