    i also never understood why people are so eager? i remember when they launched BBM for android, my whatsapp groups were flooded with BBM codes. its so stupid, to exchange BBM codes over whatsapp group.
    some people even shared on facebook walls and twitter posts also. where is the security?

    The security is the network, what RIM/BB is known for.

    One advantage is BBM uses a PIN, not email or your phone #. Keeps some privacy, similar to Kik.

    If your unfamiliar with BBM, a Youtube search will show you all you need to know.

    I am hoping the message delivery is more reliable than WhatsApp. Many people on all platforms have issues with this on WhatsApp.

    BBM used to have a music aspect, but I think they abandoned it. It has Wifi voice and video calling, which is supposedly very clear (Only on BlackBerry platform, for now.). There is BBM Channels. I also like that BBM shows "S" sent, "D" delivered, "R" read vs WhatsApp check marks for sent and delivered. Pretty sure BBM has GIF support. It also have screen sharing via video chat. You can choose to send higher quality pictures on BBM, if desired.

    yes sir, its bad news for all those who were waiting for it. Further, i think they will close down BBM for blackberry handsets also. Bcoz they said, lack of BBM in WP is due to low market share. Thus, being lower market for BB than WP, BBM might be going down in their own handsets too. Anyways its ironic that for BBM, BB handsets have to pay charges for BB services, while its free on Android n iOS.
    Can u imagine MS charging for MS office mobile on WP and giving it free on Android?

    Huh? What charges? BBM is absolutely free on BB handsets...

    I believe on pre BB10 devices you have to pay your carrier to activate it, or it's included in your tariff. Well at least that's how it was here in the UK when I had a BB Bold, not sure if things have changed since.

    On legacy BBOS7 and lower you indeed had to pay for BIS access, but that access pretty much included all BB net access.

    But BB10 doesn't require BIS anymore, BBM is as free as any other messenger app.

    ok. i wasn't aware of the fact about BB10.
    but what's the market share for BB10 anyway?
    it must be way to low as compared to WP, right?
    they just covering it up. i think Google may have asked them not to develop anything supported in WP, in exchange of access to Android app store.

    I think you are confusing with bEs. The enterprise system which is for business security on bb... Not needed for BBM. BBM has always been free on a bb (pending data connections) . Bb user for many years and continuing on bb10 currently. Yes I have a win8 Lumia, I am not closed minded as some and run two devices now.
    I would LOVE BBM on this, the groups and channels options along with security are great things to have.
