BBM Cross Platform Launch Expected “Within Days”

Well, it is a bout time we get a good update on BBM going cross platform! BlackBerry’s CMO, Frank Boulben, spoke with Reuters and said that he expects BBM to launch cross platform on Android and iOS “within days”. BlackBerry “is confident that it fixed issues that arose after the initial cross-platform launch of the messaging service last month.” According to Mr. Boulben 6 million Android and iPhone users have preregistered BBM!

“Our customers read a lot about BlackBerry these days, as we make the headlines quite often – this has created a lot of noise and confusion” Frank Boulben, the company’s chief marketing officer, said in an interview.

“We want customers to know that they can continue to count on us – we are here to stay. We have substantial cash on our balance sheet and we have no debt. We are restructuring our cost base and this is a very painful transition, but it will make us financially stronger and we want to get that message directly to our customers.”

Let us know what you think about the launch in the comments!
