BBM Not Launched Right Away In Sub Saharan Africa, BlackBerry Says Why

BBM was a global release for both the Iphone and Android. Mostly global, because it was not launched in Sub Saharan Africa. In fact, it will be three days after the launch of BBM for all before it can be downloaded there. Why?

Samsung has an exclusive on the app in their store.

BlackBerry spoke to ITWeb Africa about the situation:
“Samsung Africa has been a very proactive partner and has invested significantly in promoting BBM to its customers in Africa.”
