BBM still not available for iOS and Android as promised BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), which was expected to go live for Android this morning, has still not made its way to the Google Play Store.
The iOS app has begun its rollout in some nations, but has not hit North America, either.

The app is free on both platforms. Android users will need to be running 4.0 or higher to get the app, and iPhone users will need iOS 6 or higher.

BBM for Android and iPhone features:
  • BBM Chat Enjoy real, immediate conversations with friends on Android, iPhone and BlackBerry smartphones. Not only does BBM let you know that your message has been delivered and read, it also shows you that your friend is responding to the message.
  • More than chat With BBM you can share files on your phone such as photos and voice notes, all in an instant.
  • Keep your group in the loop Multi-person chats are a great way to invite contacts to chat together. BBM Groups lets you invite up to 30 friends to chat together, and go a step further than multi-chat by sharing photos and schedules. And, with Broadcast Message, you can send a message out to all your BBM contacts at once.
  • Post Updates and stay in the know BBM lets you post a personal message, profile picture and your current status, and lets your contacts know instantly in Updates.
  • Your unique PIN Every BBM user has a unique PIN that maintains your privacy, so you don't have to give out your phone number or email address to a new or casual contact.
