BlackBerry servers take a hit as BBM for Android leaks

Posted by


BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) for Android is out and the whole planet seems to be trying to download and activate it. BlackBerry’s servers taking a huge hit apparently.

After downloading the app and trying to login, it so happened that I had forgotten my BlackBerry ID. So, I did a reset.


Subsequently attempting to login produced an error message that said there was a maintenance going on to upgrade BlackBerry’s systems in order to serve users better.


However, our own Patrick has been able to login successfully and provides us with this first view:
