    I downloaded it with an Droid phone and saved it to my SD card with App Backup & Restore then emailed it to my tablet and installed the APK works like a charm.

    This is what it says on the apple website about BBM on tablets:
    Compatibility: Requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G, iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular (3rd generation), iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular (4th generation), and iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular. This app is optimized for iPhone 5

    So yes, it should work on an ipad.

    For Android, it only says this:
    Requires Android
    4.0 and up
    Nope. Not working on any iPad that dont have Wi-Fi. Get a closer look to the suported device list.

    Sound like any tablet must have a cellular connection in order to work.
    ?? Why

    if I install manually via apk, would I have to redownload apk each time there is an app update?

    It certainly seems that way ?. Considering those that are loading the app from an apk on a non cellular radio device state that it works fine why would BlackBerry be doing this ? (and will we ever be told the reason why ?).

    BBM - I use my Z10 with WiFi as i don't have data. Let's hope they make for Tablets as well as I use it more than I use my phone.

    I got the APK, install it on my Tab 2 WIFI only, but now I got this

    "unable to complete setup

    no connection found

    your connection to the wireless network is turned off. Restore your connections and try again"

    I do have my WIFI on. but my tab 2 is wifi only, no cellular

    is your nexus 7 wifi only ? if so, how do you make it work?

    Thanks.

    I went to bbm.com and it redirects me to playstore

    in playstore, it says that my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is not a compatible device?

    WTF!!!!!

    I want the full screen experience.

    Can anyone confirm that BBM only works on small screen device?

    Thanks.
    Same for my Nexus 7.

    Tablets are not supported from what I read. Have a rooted Nexus 7 2013, and have used an app called Market Helper to disguise the tablet as a Nexus 4 phone - its working a treat!!

    Downloaded apk file to PC, transfered it to my Nexus 7 and installed. Works a treat over wifi. If the same BBID is used, you cant run BBM on your phone and Android at the same time... its one or the other

    Well, while I had to grab the APK from a phone I was installing it on, BBM works just fine on my Trio Mach Stealth Pro tablet running a Jelly Bean ROM.
