BBM for Android and iPhone to launch “within days”

BlackBerry BBM

BlackBerry today revealed that it received some six million BBM for Android and iPhone pre-registrations. It originally launched on September 21 but BlackBerry quickly halted the deployment due to problems experienced by the messaging platform because of an unreleased (read leaked) version of BBM for Android.

By the end of September, it still had no ETA as to when it would be able to resume the deployment of both the Android and iPhone versions. Speaking to Reuters about BlackBerry’s open letter to its customers, Chief Marketing Officer Frank Boulben today revealed that he now expects BBM to launch on both those platforms “within days.” He added that the company is confident that it has now resolved the issues.

We’ll let you know as soon as BlackBerry gives us a confirmed date for the (re)launch.
