    I can't vote from my Z10 for some reason...but I don't like it. especially because it is free. They still haven't solved the loss of service revenue and this will piss off Wall Street even more

    Ok voted bad move thinking it was the full package. But later came to know that they won't get voice and video calling feature. Now I think may be its a good move.

    Blackberry/RIM will run down in less than two months with that unwise decision. Android is everywhere and extremely getting cheaper by the day. I hope they reconsider that decision before it's too late.

    If BlackBerry really pushes to create a fully functioning BBM app for other os's, it's absolutely a win. The competition is tough, but I'm all for the race!
    BB then, now, forever!

    They had to release it so they could utilize BBM Channels. The Channels could be an revenue generator for them, once big companies start promoting their stuff on it. But I guess we have to wait and see how that turns out. I'm 50/50 that they are going to release it. Deep down I really wish they didn't

    thats is the whyit sucks. BBM as across platform is good idea, but it is a little bit to late... because there is a whats app with the similar, or the same features and it is running on the both OS over long time... sadly. i like the Blackberry, but I'm using the IPhone. I have many friends on Blackberry too , they are using whats app.

    So far it's proven to be a great move.
