BBM coming to iPhone and Android?

There have been some rumors that RIM was planning to take their Blackberry Messenger (BBM) app beyond the reaches of mere Blackberries and into the uncharted terrain of Android and iOS. Now this will certainly be interesting, and we can talk more about the cross-platformization of mobile technology even further as more and more native apps are becoming functional on foreign platforms.

RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie was in Toronto today speaking at an event where he off-handed announced the app will be available for download in the App Store on April 26th (Thursday), then an update to follow in the Summer with a new “notification system”.

“RIM had a Social Media conference today in Toronto, and my entire college business and marketing class was invited to the event. RIM’s co-ceo Jim Balsillie revealed that they plan to bring BBM and “other services” to iPhone on April 26 via the app store. Major news networks are expected to pick up on this very soon! Balsillie also revealed that they plan to release an update to the app this summer which will take advantage of a new “notification system”!!!”
