BlackBerry Messenger Coming To iOS On April 26 (Update: False)

According to 9to5Mac, RIM could be planning to release their popular BlackBerry Messenger app for iOS devices. The app, which has enjoyed immense success of BlackBerry smartphones, is claimed to be hitting the App Store on April 26.

From the MacRumors Forum (the source of the initial tip):

RIM had a Social Media conference today in Toronto, and my entire college business and marketing class was invited to the event. RIM’s co-ceo Jim Balsillie revealed that they plan to bring BBM and “other services” to iPhone on April 26 via the app store. Balsillie also revealed that they plan to release an update to the app this summer which will take advantage of a new “notification system”!

Are you excited about BBM coming to an iDevice near you? I’m undecided myself. I suppose only time will reveal the supposed greatness that lies in store.

Update: I’ve seen compelling information from BGR and others suggesting that this information is false. Please disregard it.

    This was a hoax…RIM released a statement that it is not true.

  2. Steve says:

    It is a hoax. Like BB said, RIM has a statement denying it. They say the "might" release it in the future but it is not in the works at this time.

    They aren't even releasing native calendar and email on the Playbook when it is released. How can someone expect them to do BBM for iOS port!
