BlackBerry: BBM for Android, iOS is still coming, but who knows when As the company continues to prove that it can do nothing right, BlackBerry has announced that it is still committed to releasing BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) for Android and iOS despite a failed launch a week ago.
The company had planned to launch the app last week, but it only made its way to the Australian iOS App Store before being pulled. A leaked Android .APK also broke the company's servers. Since then, the company has stayed mum on details of the app, leaving fans in the dark.

Today, BlackBerry gave a little update on the app:

There is no timetable for the launch.

@ mukhis :

There are at least 5 relatives of mine who use BBM as their main communication application. Unfortunately WhatsApp is available for only certain version of BB OS and Viber not all. Same goes for Skype. Having used both, BB Curve and Samsung Grand, I have to admit that BB applications for contacts and Planner/scheduler is far better than anything on Android !
