If you dare to try unfinished software, you can download and try the new Beta version of BBM here


  1. personally i also prefer to install the finished official version as beta versions usually need bug fixes. the final version should be out very soon

  2. @hallengray please can you defend your claim that RIM developers are dumb, since you are obviously “smarter”

  3. Downloaded & installed it from the blackberry beta zone, if this is all they r adding to the new version of BBM, then as usual, I am disappointed!!!

  4. I have not been able to download it as it says application form is not available for my country.

    Help what can I do to download it. Want to try it out.
