    Hey,

    So if you read the bbm twitter post, it says, next 5 million in line, you're up. Does that imply that 5 million have already downloaded and that we could hit 10 million this week?

    Wow. This would make this the biggest launch of a cross-platform messenger app.

    does that include the 6 million that originally registered or those after the 6 million, because that is seriouslly impressive, either way 5 million downloads in a few hours is impressive

    This is very good news! But as impressive as the launch numbers are I would hope this growth continues in the weeks and months ahead, that to me would be a more positive indicator on the success of BBM.

    Well, we know anyone that pre-registered could start using it immediately. And I know a few friends that I got to register today as soon as it was announced, got their emails a few hours ago. So if that tweet 30 mins ago refers to another 'batch', it means that there were more than 5 million that registered for the email just today!

    They did but many just signed up today and many of those already have it loaded. It is possible that of the 6 million that signed up before hand haven't downloaded the app yet.

    I'm waiting a few days for the initial surge to die down before sending along links to friends. I'd rather they not have to deal with the email 'wait in line' stuff... I can see a few of them getting that far and not bothering to go any further... I'll do an email blast of people I chat with regularly for the weekend when they're more likely to be relaxed and have the time to sign up for a BBID, etc as well.

    i take it as this, the 6 million who pre-registered are not counted there, 5 million already went through the line, and another 5 million was next,...so that's 6+5+5=16million.... O.o

    I figure that pretty much everyone in India, Indonesia, Nigeria will grab bbm so they should easily be able to double or triple bbm users on that alone

    I'm happy the launch is going well so far. Looks like blackberry has finally done something right. So much for waiting until a deal is finalized eh?

    Could hit 10 million today...that announcement came out before my wife received her's this morning....I'm going out on a limb, but my prediction is 25 to 30 million by weeks end. this is blowing up! I don't think the average person really has a grip on how big this is.

    My buddy signed up yesterday late afternoon, still no email. Does it usually take this long?

    Usually?! This is the first time BlackBerry has done a wait list for an app, so nothing to compare it to.
