It was bound to happen. Tired of all the bad-mouthing of their beloved platform by aliens from planets Android and iOS, and the sudden flooding of their precious exclusive space by said aliens just because of BBM, true blue Blackberry users are revolting. There is a not-so-underground movement resisting the invasion. Have a look at a BBM message that I received this morning:
The text (loosely translated) reads in part:
If you receive any BBM request with a PIN that starts with a 7, please don’t accept. We don’t care if its an iPhone, TECNO Phantom or Samsung S4. If they want to ping, they should buy a BlackBerry…
Yes; a new smartphone war is on, and BlackBerry boys and babes are not smiling! They want you extraterrestrials from Android and iOS off their turf. What have you to say in return?
