    Albeit I am drawing a conclusion from a small sample size, the interest in the Passport seems to have increased BlackBerry and BBM awareness. My BBM contacts have doubled in the last few weeks and all from iPhone or Android users.

    Most have said they have been or are looking at the Passport and decided to test the BlackBerry world out by installing the BBM app on to their phones.

    All have been very impressed with the quality of BBM voice.

    Hopefully this small sample size will extend to the general population and BBM will see a spike in users.

    Luckily most of my main contacts now have BBM so I am now using BBM more than text messaging. A year ago I couldn't pay anyone to install BBM.

    You might see a small uptick in BBM users but I will guess that the majority of passport users are already BB users so they wont be adding to the numbers

    Plus many of us are hoarders of all things BlackBerry and so we'll just keep our old devices instead of selling them and allowing it to go on to be another BBM user.

    Or maybe that's just me.

    I've been modeling BBM growth for the past year. BBM will reach 100M downloads from Google Play in December. Will be writing soon about when it should reach 100M MAUs across all platforms...
