We know you've not all stayed loyal to BlackBerry over the years, but you can breathe a sigh of relief if you're a Windows Phone user, as your itch for BBM might soon be fulfilled. We heard from John Chen during the Annual General Meeting that Windows Phone would be recieving BBM in July, but the date wasn't made public.
A link for a private beta of BBM made its appearance this evening in the Windows Phone Store. We can confirm that the link is real and there will be more details regarding an external beta for BBM For Windows Phone should be made available soon via the BBM Blog.
We were hearing rumors of a public release scheduled for July 15th, but it'll likely be closer to the end of the month if we are only now seeing the arrival of a private/external beta.
