For iPhone users in a number of regions around the world, BlackBerry’s much anticipated BBM is finally here. The BBM Twitter account tweeted in the past few hours that iPhone users in New Zealand, India, Malaysia, UAE and Australia can now download BBM. The Android version of the IM app is still to come though; BlackBerry says they are working to launch it ASAP. The initial schedule announced had the Android version coming first today, and the iPhone tomorrow.
We’re not sure if this is genuine interest in BBM itself as an IM application, or just non-BlackBerry users curious to take a peek at why BBM was so loved, but whatever it is the anticipation for the WhatsApp alternative is quite high! We are Android too and waiting in there with you. We’ll be updating you once it’s live! In the meantime, make sure you avoid the fakes.
