BlackBerry Messenger Coming to iOS and Android 'Before the End of Summer'
Submitted by Anders Batten on
Rumors originally pointed to a June 27 release for the iOS and Android versions of BlackBerry's Messenger software, but CEO Thorsten Heins has confirmed that the long awaited BlackBerry Messenger won't be available until later this year. Heins announced that the cross-platform service will land on both iOS and and Android devices "before the end of this summer," during a quarterly earnings call this morning.
BBM will be free to download, but it will only support devices running iOS 6 or higher, and Android 4.0 or higher, according to MobileSyrup.com. The service will also initially be limited to messaging and groups at launch, with plans to add other popular BlackBerry features such as BBM Voice in future updates.
