BlackBerry CMO expecting BBM for iPhone to launch ‘within days’


After the first launch of BBM on iPhone suffered massive issues and was eventually halted, we’ve been left wondering when, if at all, we may see the messaging service again. According to a report on Reuters, BlackBerry CMO Frank Boulben expects a launch ‘within days.’

Boulben said the company already has 6 million Android and iPhone customers pre-registered for the launch of its BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) service.

He said he expects the BBM to launch on both those platforms “within days,” adding that the company is confident that it fixed issues that arose after the initial cross-platform launch of the messaging service last month.

Whether this turns out to be the case or not, we’ll have to wait and see. There is still plenty of interest it seems in BBM for Android and iOS, how long it lasts only time will tell.
