Earlier this week BlackBerry announced that they would be launching their popular BlackBerry Messenger app on other platforms outside of BlackBerry 10, the new platforms include Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android.
It looks like whilst BlackBerry Messenger is headed to Apple’s iOS platform, it will be available on the iPhone initially and not the iPad when the app is launched, we presume this would be the same for Android and will land on Android phones first before Android tablet.
The news comes from BlackBerry software portfolio chief, Vivek Bhardway, who told Trusted Reviews, that support for tablets is low on the company’s agenda for the BlackBerry Messenger cross platform launch.
At this point it is iOS and Android, and that’s iOS phones running iOS 6 and higher” Bhardwaj said of the app. “Smartphone is our real focus and again it comes back to what BBM is. If you look BBM and the engagement and the activity, it’s because it is mobile, because people are on the go.”
