BBM for Android and iOS has seen substantial interest. In the weeks before launch, BlackBerry saw over 6 million users lodge interest in the social networking app.
Once released, we saw BBM shoot up in Apple’s App Store to #2 spot in the US (now #1) and nearly immediately hit #1 around the world. The interest for BBM is surmountable.
BlackBerry rolled out BBM in a staggered launch, with users who did not originally lodge interest having to wait in line. A recent tweet from BlackBerry, 8hrs later revealed the company was approving an additional 5 million users in just 8 hours!
Next 5 million in line – your turn! Open up BBM and click “I got the email” to get started on #BBM right away!

Quite the demand nonetheless. It will be interesting to see the final results from the first day of re-launch. How many downloads do you think BBM saw across Android and iOS?
