Blackberry Resumes Phased Roll Out Of BBM

Blackberry has started its phased rollout of the BBM messaging application for both Apple and Android devices after the messed up September launch when rumors surfaced that the software was leaked. This free application can now be downloaded from the App Store, Google Play and some select Samsung App Stores. Users have to register email addressed after the downloading of the application and wait for their turn till they get the permission.

The Company revealed that in just seven hours following the leak last month there were about one million Android users using the unreleased version of the BBM messaging system for Android phones. This in turn led to unspecified problems for the official launch of the messaging application.

 

RIM also revealed that there were about 6 million people that had signed up for information on BBM on the website. The spokesperson for the company Andrew Bocking revealed that in order to manage the unprecedented demand for BBM the Company has decided to implement a line up process that would be an easy one for ensuring a smooth rollout of the application to Apple and Android users. This is good news for a host of mobile users as they can now effectively download the BBM application and use it freely to communicate with their dear and near ones.
