As expected, BBM for iPhone is now available to download from Apple’s App Store. Meanwhile, there is still no sign of BBM for Android, which was supposed to be launched before the iOS version. This could potentially bring BBM to a few hundred million users overnight. BlackBerry currently has about 60 million users on BBM and desperately needs more users if it is indeed considering spinning off BBM into a separate company.
BBM on Android and iOS will bring the legendary messaging service to non-BlackBerry users for the first time but it won’t bring all the features. BBM voice calling, for instance, will still be exclusively available to BlackBerry smartphones only, though it might eventually come to Android and iOS later. Earlier, a video walkthrough and user guide for the app had leaked online.
