    More Competition For BBM


    With the success of RIM's BlackBerry Messenger service, the competition are starting to feel the heat. We announced a few months ago that Facebook released a stand alone app designed to enhance the users' chat experience. Apple also announced some tweaking of their own chat product. These and other companies are realizing that the social experience is not complete without a solid messaging application. This is one area in which BlackBerry has been ahead of the pack for quite some time now.

    Now, we can add another competitor to the race of social media domination, Samsung. Samsung, earlier this week, unveiled their new chat service ChatON. This service is to include group chat support, direct link between buddies, and an interaction rank that ranks users on how much they communicate with you. All this sound familiar? It should, as BBM has had these features (minus the interaction ranking) for years. BBM is rock solid and continues to develop with even more features.

    Do you think that this, and other messenger apps pose a threat to BBM?

    See if this was an Android-based messaging service, I'd think okay maybe it can have some success... but a Samsung only messaging service? Nope not gonna work sorry... that's the biggest problem with Android... How fragmented it is... Samsung does one thing, HTC does another, and are called "Droid"

    Yes it does, because of the multi platform feature, that itself is a killer, look at whatsapp now, used on all iphones/androids and some blackberrys (by some i mean a lot)

    right and I think it'll be popular but there's a huge difference between something being popular and something being on the same level as BBM... Whatsapp is popular but it is nowhere near as popular as BBM, nor will it ever be... BBM is getting so much added to it that its not just a messaging service anymore

    BBM is definitely on another level to the competition and it will be tuff for them to get on the same level anytime soon. Now with BBM Music and so many integrated apps, it opens up a whole social network within a messaging platform.
