Grand news is out recently that claims the Canadian tech giant and mobile phone maker BlackBerry Inc has got no intention of bringing a BlackBerry Messaging (BBM) app to the Windows Phone platform.
Their comments published in the Trusted Reviews from the company clearly indicate that the company deems the Windows Phone platform too small to warrant the investment. The online blog, named TechCrunch, has confirmed the statements.
According to the Trusted Reviews article, BlackBerry Inc.’s David Proulx had called the nonexistence of a BBM application for the Windows Phone platform “entirely market driven,” and then stated that the decision is not a “religious thing,” but it instead is merely a choice made on the back of their consumer demand.
So, we are sorry for the Windows Phone fans. If you were pining for the BBM app, you must wait fore more time. And a question rises in the mind; will BlackBerry bring the BBM app to the Windows Phone platform in the future? It can be “yes”, but the time would be only once the Windows Phone reaches a larger scale.
In the words of Mr. Proulx, “as the other platforms emerge, whichever they might be, BlackBerry will execute on those platforms as well.”
The main question then becomes whether BlackBerry can still be around by the time that Windows Phone “emerges.”
