    WOW Did you people read this? they change the story like blackberry is like begging them to install BBM on their devices


    Blackberry is probably best known for its messaging feature, which was the first such service to allow users to chat without any cost from the carriers. And while many such services have launched since Blackberrys glory days, arguably none have been so secure or feature rich as BBM so its a bit surprising and a bit sad to see BBM finally coming to other platforms.

    Blackberry announced long ago that they would be opening up their BBM platform to other ecosystems such as Android and iOS and now theyre finally taking the first step in this direction. According to a Samsung press release, their Galaxy line of handsets will be start getting the BBM app in the following days. Unfortunately this is only aimed at Africa so users in other places will still have to wait a while before they can actually use BBM on their Androids and iPhones.

    Of course theres one obvious question here: who in the world is actually waiting for BBM? As we mentioned above Blackberrys product is still probably one of the most secure chat platforms out there with other services having major security flaws. Then again those other services have become super popular so its safe to say that most people dont actually care about encrypting their chat sessions.

    No, this actually looks like a desperate bid for relevancy on Blackberrys part. A bid to try and stem the tide of time which throws them deeper and deeper into history. The Canadian company is struggling, and has been for a long time now, with a long-delayed new OS, unimpressive devices, and incredibly strong competition.

    So BBM on Samsung devices? Sure, jump on board but it certainly doesnt mean much in the grand scheme of electronic things.

    And as source they call N4BB, but they didnt even post this story, that website changed it to make it bad looking for BlackBerry...

    I think it's not far wrong - but not in the negative way that article slates it - I think the game is up for Blackberry in the handset/hardware market and trying to quickly move their key assets such as BBM and BES to be multi-platform is how the company will survive and the only sensible option - no point waiting until you shut down the handset set before they make the leap - this is a very sensible move.
