    With the EMTEK announcement that BBM Consumer will be shutting down May 31, I have been running BBM Consumer and BBM Enterprise side-by-side. I noticed four things:

    1. BBM Enterprise uses less battery power than BBM Consumer.
    2. BBM Enterprise uses less memory than BBM Consumer.
    3. BBM Enterprise is faster and more fluid than BBM Consumer.
    4. BBM Enterprise is faster when accessed through the Hub than BBM Consumer.

    Just sharing. You might want to run your own tests to confirm.

    Summary: BBM Enterprise feels faster and more integrated in my KEY2 than BBM Consumer ever was.

    Oh, I forgot to mention how good the voice quality is! I tested a call between my KEY2 and a BB10 Z30, and I have never heard a clearer connection!

    I like that with BBME I can use the same account on multiple devices. I have both a Key2 as well as a Lenovo tablet and before I had to have 2 BBM accounts to manage in order to use BBM om both. I was worried with BBMe I would have to setup 2 accounts. Instead, I can use the same BBM account on BBMe and it even gives me the option to select one account as the primary. Much more convenient.

    Very good point. I’m giving BBMe a go with the CB peeps..

    I finally migrated my BBM Consumer contacts to BBM Enterprise and deleted the BBM Consumer app.

    WOW. Running the BlackBerry Power Centre, the amount of extra free memory is astounding. I would say that BBMe is 100-150 MB less overhead, and consumes HALF of the power of BBM Consumer while being twice as responsive and better integrated with the Hub.

    I'm impressed!

    How does the consumption compare to FB Messenger? Or even the Android texting app?

    Not sure about Facebook, since I don't have an account. Android Messages is pretty light on resources, but I don't use SMS enough to really notice.

    BBMe uses relatively less power than WhatsApp. That much I have noticed.
