The interwebs were going crazy over the rumors of BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) possibly making its way onto Android and iOS. Our only logic behind the move (if it’s true) is RIM wants to put an end to the 3rd party apps that have fiercely attempted at emulating BBM. They likely want to better connect users with BlackBerrys to their friends with Android or Apple products. Likely, with hopes that a few new subscribers will be move to the BlackBerry platform for a more robust feature set that follows on the BlackBerry BBM version.
However, there is the possibility that some current BlackBerry users (especially those still using a BlackBerry for the sole purpose of BBM) may entirely jump ship and turn the dark side. Will you leave BlackBerry for an Android or iOS device if you could still use BBM?
