Blackberry releases BBM for Android Beta (testing)

Canadian smartphone maker, Blackberry earlier this year announced plans to offer its infamous messaging service – BBM – on cross platforms Android and iOS by September this year.

In keeping up with their promise, the smartphone maker finally released invites to the cross-platform beta (only for android) today. Invites were released to those registered on Blackberry’s beta services and Blackberry employees (and their nominated friends and family).

BlackBerry has begun internal testing of BBM on Android and iOS devices. We invited our employees to nominate friends and family to participate in a limited Android beta. Those slots are now full. For more information, please visit
