Nigerian Blackberry users launch “anti-android campaign”

Posted on Updated on

As we all know, Blackberry messenger has officially been launched on android. Some Blackberry users
think this recent development is not fair on Blackberry users, hence their show of disapproval.
I want to ask the Blackberry users in the house, have you gotten this message that is being sent to all BB
users by Anti-Android activists? Cos although I didn’t, word on the nigerian blogosphere says its bin circulating for some time now…..
“Attention Blackberry Users: If u receive any BBM request and d pin starts wit 7, pls dnt accept. We
dnt care if you use an iPhone, Techno Phantom or Samsung S4, if you want 2 ping, buy a Blackberry; b4 u guys will turn bbm to 2go.”

BlackBerry Suspends BBM for Androids and iPhones until further notice

Posted on Updated on

BlackBerry has suspended its plans to make available
its messenger, BBM on Android and iPhones until
further notice due to high downloads of the
unofficial version of the app by Android users.
BlackBerry’s statement on its official blog.
“Prior to launching BBM for Android, an unreleased
version of the BBM for Android app was posted
online. The interest and enthusiasm we have seen
already – more than 1.1 million active users in the
first 8 hours without even launching the official
Android app – is incredible. Consequently, this
unreleased version caused issues, which we have
attempted to address throughout the day.
Our teams continue to work around the clock to
bring BBM to Android and iPhone, but only when it’s
ready and we know it will live up to your
expectations of BBM. We are pausing the global roll-
out of BBM for Android and iPhone. Customers who
have already downloaded BBM for iPhone will be
able to continue to use BBM.
The unreleased Android app will be disabled, and
customers who downloaded it should
visitwww.BBM.comto register for updates on official
BBM for Android availability.
As soon as we are able, we will begin a staggered
country roll-out of BBM for Android and continue the
roll-out of BBM for iPhone. Please follow @BBM on
Twitter for the latest updates and go
towww.BBM.comto sign-up for updates about BBM
for Android and iPhone. These issues have not
impacted BBM service for BlackBerry.”
