BGR just announced in an exclusive that some of their sources have stated Research in Motion is planning on bringing BlackBerry Messenger to iOS and Android devices. It seems like there’s still no information on release dates or pricing, if there will be any, and there are still details and decisions to be made around this.

RIM could release the application for free to all platforms or charge a fee for using the app, whether it is a one time fee or a recurrent one. We don’t know if this is going to be a good thing or a bad thing for RIM, but if they released it for free that would do more harm than good in terms of drawing new users to the BlackBerry platform.

Do you think it is a good idea if you could use BBM on any other platform?
