Folks from over at BlackBerryOS.com seem to have gotten hold of an early build of the much awaited official BBM Messenger application for Android. The same folks had earlier leaked out images of the App splash screen. In the latest addition, the same folks have additional screenshots from the application.
BlackBerry had a few months ago – on the eve of the announcement of the Z10 told us all that they are planning to bring popular BBM messaging client to Android as well as the iOS platforms. The promise was that these apps would arrive ‘before the end of the summer’.
It is therefore not at all surprising to see that screenshots of the same are being leaked nowadays – also indicating an official announcement in the not too distant future. The images leaked show a sign-in page on a Samsung Galaxy S3. The previous leak showed glimpses of the App itself . It would be too early to comment on the UI and other aspects of this application at this juncture. However, it is obvious from the screenshots that BBM for Android would be be getting the left side App drawer akin to the BlackBerry Hub Application on BB 10.
When do you think would BlackBerry finally release this cross platform version of BBM – and more importantly, do you see yourself using this app in favour of other popular services like WhatsApp and WeChat?
