BBM is not for all, after all. At least not yet. The official word from BlackBerry is that windows Phone OS is not viable enough et for them to develop a BBM app for it. According to PhoneArena, here are the words of David Proulx, BlackBerry’s Senior Director of BBM Business Development:
“It is not a statement of intent, and it’s not a strategic or religious thing, it’s just a function of when does it make sense and when is it something that consumers demand in sufficient numbers to make it worth our while and worth their while.”
