BlackBerry extends BBM to Android & iOS

BlackBerry Inc. said Tuesday that it is expanding its messaging service known as BBM to competing smartphone platforms Android and iOS.

The announcement was made at the company’s annual BlackBerry Live conference in Orlando, Florida where CEO Thorsten Heins said “it’s time to bring BBM to a greater audience,” touting the strength of the company’s new BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system.

The BBM application will be available for free to iPhone users running on iOS 6 and Android users on the Ice Cream Sandwich version and higher beginning this summer.
