    iMessage is Apple's text and media messaging service, bundled into the Messages app on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. And that's where the platform support ends. There's no iMessage for Windows or Android. There's certainly no iMessage for Windows Phone or BlackBerry. Unlike Apple's Mail, Contacts, Calendar, and iWork, there's not even an iMessage in the iCloud. But, on the heels of Facebook buying WhatsApp for $16 billion and BlackBerry entirely missing the BBM boat... should there be?

    There are numerous cross-platform messaging apps available to use and yet, not everyone uses them. Just because iMessages is an Apple service, making it for Android and other platforms will not guarantee that everyone will use it just like everyone do not use an iPhone or an iPad.

    I think it'd be great if there was an iMessage client for the other platforms. Everyone may not use it but the option to use it would certainly be great

    Very unlikely Apple will do this.

    It would be good to have this just a competitor to BBM and it would get more people interested in getting an iPhone or iPad. I don't see why not...

    Not gonna happen. I remember reading what a fight it was to even get iTunes to Windows.

    If iTunes wasn't on Windows, Apple would have been losing money since some people don't own a Mac but they have a PC.
