While BlackBerry CEO John Chen was giving up some not so terrible news at the company’s quarterly earnings report, one of the things he confirmed was the availability of BlackBerry Messenger coming to Windows Phone.
It was back in March when BlackBerry said that we could expect to see the iconic instant messaging service sometime between May and July, and now Mr. Chen has confirmed that BBM will make that goal.
We knew long ago that Windows Phone would eventually get BBM, but it has been the better part of a year that we have been waiting to see the service expand beyond iOS and Android. At this point, we do not know how rich the feature set will be with BBM for Windows Phone, but hopefully it will at least have the same functionality that is available on BBM for iOS and Android.
No firm date was noted with Mr. Chen’s announcement, but at least we know BBM will finally be landing on Windows Phone in a few short weeks.
