Kik Messenger for BlackBerry 10 confirmed or a confusion?
I contacted Kik Support to ask them about their app to be available on BB10 but their answer left me thinking if they actually know about BB10 or if Ben did read the email correctly...

I'm contacting you because I wanted to know if can count on Kik
Messenger to be available on the new BlackBerry 10 platform, as it is my
cross platform messaging app of preference. I'm currently a Kik user
through my BB smartphone.
Please make it happen. )

You can certainly download Kik Messenger onto your BlackBerry 10. However, Kik is not an official app of BlackBerry so there may be some functionality issues because of this.

The Android verison has always worked. This is not new. I had KIK converted and running on the PlayBook 30 minutes after RIM handed me a developer's beta PlayBook during the San Fran devcon back in 2011.
I'm sure that's what he is talking about and they have no intentions of making a native BB10 version.

Alec himself told me that BB10 will have development mode. Developers need a easy way to test their apps. So side loading will continue to be an option.

He's confused. Kik adopted a run anywhere solution for BlackBerry devices in the fact that it uses Java. He just spit out a generic answer as soon as he read "BlackBerry"

I think the Kik office is in waterloo. I was driving down weber towards king and just before king and weber near the shell gas station I saw the sign. I can go in and ask next time I'm in that end of town

Kick was kicked out of Appworld weren't they? It was started by a guy who worked on BBM and stole some secrets or something, RIM sued them at some point.
