Another day, another present from the BlackBerry community. The complaint I hear the most from PlayBook users, or people who want to purchase a PlayBook is ‘Does it have BBM?’ or ‘ I can’t believe it doesn’t have BBM’. Yes, we can use bridge if we are current BIS/BES subscribers, but that is not the case for a lot of people. And that still doesn’t support groups either.
Well here is some good news from BBOta.cn, they claim that BlackBerry 10 will be launching next month on the PlayBook, and within that will be native BlackBerry Messenger, with full chat and video support. This would coincide with a rumour I heard a couple weeks ago from an insider, that RIM was going to release BlackBerry 10 on the PlayBook two weeks before the BlackBerry 10 phone launch as a marketing strategy. Lets see what all plays out!
