Thanks for your patience. Working hard to get you the real BBM ASAP. We’ll let you know when it’s live. ?#?BBM4ALL?
The promised release of BBM for Android did not materialise today. If you were unable to download the leaked app before the channels were blocked, I am afraid that you have to wait for BlackBerry to sort themselves out.
Of course, this is a huge disappointment for a lot of people who were eagerly awaiting to have the app installed and running on their Android smartphones today. Despite the delay, lots of download sites took a heavy hit today as enthusiasts rushed to download the leaked app. Sites like Dropbox, 4Shared, and Mobility here did not escape as their servers took the brunt of the massive traffic.
Keeping fingers crossed and looking forward to BBM for Android becoming available in Play Store.
