You might have heard that after years of making BBM exclusive to BlackBerry device customers only, and then watching the WhatsApps and what nots run with the prize, BlackBerry finally woke up. Well, not really, since they are all but yielding the ghost. Anyway, life onwards or not, BlackBerry decided to open up BBM to other platforms, chiefly Android and IOS, but maybe later Windows as well.
Us Android users can’t wait for it ofcourse, at least just so we can see what all the BBM fuss is about. For BlackBerry devices users in a Zimbabwe where BlackBerry is banned however, it’s a different and, quite frankly, funny story. Here’s how a friend painted the picture for us:
Won’t it be like REALLY sad when BlackBerry is launched on Android and everyone BUT those with BlackBerries will be able to access it in Zimbabwe!!!
Up to now there are a lot of die hard BlackBerry fans out there. You gonna have people who have a handset that they won’t even be able to use its core function, whilst others will be accessing what should be main steam for them
