It wasn’t a matter of if, but instead when BlackBerry would finally decide to decouple its BBM service from its own devices. Samsung has already started advertising the fact that its Galaxy line of phones will feature BlackBerry Messenger, but BlackBerry stayed relatively quiet until a redesigned BBM landing page appeared on Thursday confirming the impending release for Android and iPhone. CrackBerry noticed the page, which only mentions the iPhone as opposed to a more inclusive “iOS devices” phrasing, which might indicate that Apple’s tablet will be left out of the initial release. This expansion might also be a sign that BBM breaking off from BlackBerry is even more probable than before.
