| | Re: is bbm worth having?
Opening up BBM to iOS and Android can revitalize BBM. Especially Android. Apple has iMessage, a BBM-style messaging protocol that is iPhone-only. It will be a real uphill battle to get iPhone users to adopt BBM in light of what iMessage gives them. Android doesn't have anything as compelling as iMessage or BBM. If Android users adopt BBM in force that might drag along enough iPhone users so it's at least a second messaging app more users will consider.
