    Exclamation BBM An Android?

    Hi,

    What do you think/was the point in RIM Blackberry putting the BBM service on Android phones? Yes I know android in general has better phones and a hell of a lot more users but why do they think we need it? When you have Android you either learn to text or use a 3rd party app such as snapchat or whatsapp maybe even Skype. Also is this coming to be like a blackberry were you have to pay £5 a month to actually use it?

    Many Thanks,
    Kieran

    Re: BBM An Android?

    IMO RIM is on a sinking ship and they're doing a cash grab from non-users to either tide them over to better days, or to get one last pay cheque before they go under.

    I uninstalled Fring / WhatsApp / Viber / Skype / Kik as my friends already have a dozen ways to get hold of me as is.

    The only real; advantage I can see to BBM on Android is that a lot of younger people use it, so if you are chasing tail and don't have a BlackBerry, at least you can still contact them hehe.

    Nah. Luckily none of my mates were part of the BB crowd so I have no reason to be on it.

    I think its a stupid idea for BB to do this. I know LOADS of people that the only reason they 'like' blackberrys (when I say like I mean own/tolerate) is because their circle of friends use BBM. Move BBM off to other devices and you move the cool kidz onto other devices.

    RIM is not exactly a manufacturer any more, more like a software services provider imo.

    Re: BBM An Android?

    i came from blackberry and actually hated BBM. i tried it on my Note 3 and took it out straight away. no good to me as 2 people i know use BBM, 27 of the people i know use whatsapp.

    a no brainer really.

    RIP RIM.
