Turns out the rumors around RIM’s BlackBerry Messenger coming to Android and iOS were just rumors but it was nice while it lasted! Company officials have recently denied any plans of making the service multi-platform.
Alec Saunders, RIM’s VP of Developer Relations and Christopher Smith, Senior Director of BlackBerry Development Platform have dismissed all rumored information regarding BBM o other platforms. During a press event at DevCon, Saunders said “he wasn’t aware of it” and Smith noted “there were no plans for it”. Of course that doesn’t mean that it will never come; it just means that the two execs were either poorly informed, hiding something or, face it, there really were no plans!
