BBM For Android & iPhone Not Supported For
By now, a good number of people know that
BlackBerry is releasing the revered BlackBerry
Messenger to other platforms before September.
This was further reassured by Thorsten Heins at the
BBLive conference this morning.
According to Thorsten Heins, BBM would be free of
charge to download and use. However, only the
messaging and group chat would be rolled put first,
followed by BBM Voice, Screen Sharing, Video
Capabilities and BBM channels later in the year.
While a lot of folks are very much excited about this
soon to be released BBM for Android and iOS, it is
important to note that it won't support some devices.
Below are the devices it won't support
1. Any Android device running Android version lower
than Ice Cream Sandwich. That is, anything less than
Android 4.0 won't be supported.
2. Any iOS device running less than iOS 6.0 won't be
supported. That is any iPhone lower than iPhone 3GS
won't be supported, iPhone 4 still running iOS 5.1.1
won't be supported. Same goes for the iPads running
less than iOS 6.
3. Windows Phone 8 devices are not supported at all.
So what does this mean?
It means that if you are very excited about this move
and want to use BBM on your Android or Apple device,
you should also make sure that your mobile device
the requirements to download and use the soon to be
released BBM for Android and iOS.
