A couple of sources have just posted images of the BlackBerry Messenger a.k.a the BBM app running on an Android smartphone. The images reveal nothing we don’t know about BBM, as the UI seems to be directly borrowed from the BlackBerry 10 OS with all the gesture patterns in place. BBM for Android is claimed to be in Beta Testing now, which means that a launch is not far away. A selected bunch of users have been fortunate enough to be invited to try out this new app, and the results are in front of us.
The app was originally slated to arrive by the end of June, but due to unknown reasons, the launch was pushed further. The app apparently requires Android devices to be running at least Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to function properly, according to CrackBerry. The arrival of BBM on Android has been heavily hyped, but we’re not sure if it will find a lot of users. We just hope it doesn’t turn into yet another chat client out of the thousands already available in the Play Store.
