BBM is Coming to Android on September 21 and iOS on September 22

By the end of this week, BBM will be made available for both Android and iOS platforms. Android will get the service one day prior to iOS. On Saturday, Android users will get their fill, while on Sunday those individuals utilizing iOS will get access to the service. The summer debut of the apps for these two systems occurs amidst rumors of BlackBerry’s grim fate. 

The company is facing dire straits and is expected to go down. Besides allowing the user base to get in touch with those in possession of a BlackBerry, BBM will have a ton of new features. These include delivery, read and typing reminders. Subscribers may employ files, pictures and voice clips among other cool facilities. Collective chats between up to 30 persons can take place too. 

The application being introduced by BlackBerry works for: Android 4.0 (and beyond), iOS 6 and iOS 7. There was a time when Blackberry was on top of its game. But today, it is in the doldrums and literally at loggerheads with itself. BBM is a last ditch effort by BlackBerry to attract valuable customers. 

BBM can be freely downloaded from Google Play and Apple’s App Store once it arrives. It seems after the app didn’t succeed on BlackBerry’s own systems, the firm execs decided to lend it out to other systems such as Android and iOS. On these novel platforms, it just might see the light of day.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
