Default Re: BBM going xplatform [iOS and Android]

I know BlackBerry is looking at a bigger picture and I know I don't see it. Not that it isn't there, just is beyond me. But one of the last people I know that was using a BlackBerry for his personal smartphone switched to an Android device a while back. Actually he and his wife. The only thing he missed, really missed a lot, was BBM. And yet he and his wife still switched. This news pleases him. If he can use BBM again he will, in an instant. But I don't expect he and his wife will come back to BlackBerry smartphones.

Whatever BlackBerry is up to, I sense there will be a lot of people picking up and using BBM if given the opportunity. If they can make money off of that more power to them.
