• BBM Is Not Coming To iOS And Android On June 27th [Updated]

    Update: T-Mobile UK has deleted the tweet and BlackBerry has sent out an official response confirming our initial post:

    "On May 14th, BlackBerry announced plans to make its ground-breaking mobile social network, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), available to iOS and Android users this summer, subject to approval by the Apple App Store and Google Play. While there have been reports that BBM will be available to iOS and Android on June 27th, this is not accurate. We will communicate an update as soon as we have an availability date to share."


    BlackBerry Messenger's cross platform move is the hottest topic right now. We suggested a date for release, and now a big rumored date, June 27th, seems to but all been confirmed by T-Mobile UK's official Twitter account.

    Unfortunately, we're here to tell you that on June 27th, BBM will not be available on Android or on iOS. Speaking to a source close to the BBM project, we've been told "BBM on iOS and Android will not be ready for that date (June 27th)."

    Why, oh why, did T-Mobile UK tweet that then? We don't know, but we can expect this tweet to be deleted soon after BlackBerry gets a hold of their PR/Social Media team.

    As soon as we have an official date, we will update you guys as well.
