xBBM officially here....
 
Inside BlackBerry - The Official BlackBerry Blog

This is the news you’ve been waiting for! I am thrilled to tell you that we are about to officially resume our rollout of BBM for Android and iPhone customers around the globe!* In the next few hours, people will start seeing BBM in Google Play, the App Store and in select Samsung App Stores – where it will be free to download.

The demand for BBM on Android and BBM on iPhone continues to be amazing. About six million people signed up for information about BBM at BBM.com. As you know, in just seven hours, about one million Android users were using the unreleased version of BBM for Android. What you don’t know is that more than one million people have found creative ways to “side load” BBM on their iPhone. This is incredible.

To help manage this unprecedented pent up demand for BBM, we are implementing a simple line-up system to ensure a smooth roll out. Here’s how it is going to work…

BBM Roll Out Details:
Download BBM – the easiest way is to visit BBM.com from your Android or iPhone browser*
Once you install the app, open it, and enter your email address to hold your spot in line
We will email you as soon as you reach the front of the line and can start using BBM

I simply don't see how this is possible.

They have little choice. They want to stagger the load on the servers. That's my best guess.

No, I don't see how there are that many interested people.

Well, I'm sure we can discuss that when BlackBerry crows about how much of a success this was. You may be surprised. How many is 'that many'?

Not bad. I have little to no complaints from Android users but some iOS users are complaining of jumpyness and general lag with BBM.

Getting reports of a BBM update on Google Play. Can anyone confirm?
