    Default BBM Release Date?

    So I just read some obscure mobile website that BBM for ios and android are supposed to be releases on 9/18.

    Does anyone have any legit back up for a potential release date?

    They're probably waiting until both iTunes and Google Play have approved the app so they can release on both platforms at once.

    There was an article on the iMore blog that puts the release date at 09/21. Will be here soon. As a BB convert, not sure what the buzz is about at this point. To each his own, I suppose.

    Today was suppose to be the release date for Android but it appears the worst of two worlds collide: BlackBerry's inability to release anything when they say they are going too and Google's inability to get a handle on the Play Store.

    From Android Central: These are all fake BBM apps — don't download them

    This (^^^^^^) plus the fact that I could really care less about either platform makes this of no interest to me. At. All.

    I care for a couple of reasons. My adult children and me are planning on using BBM and one of my daughters has a Droid device. Plus, it is amusing when when both BlackBerry and Android camps, whose fanboys and fangirls have spent the last week blasting iOS 7 and the iPhone 5s/5c, look inept on the same stage.

    With this, I can agree.

    Seeing on Twitter that the app is no longer available in countries where it had been released... New Zealand... Australia... may not come out as planned here...

    delayed... confirmed:

    What country are you in? What did you type into App Store to get it? Sounds like it is indefinitely delayed here in USA.
