We have heard from a few readers that BlackBerry is working on a beta program for BBM on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. They have sent out invites to users and it seems like the goal is to bring support for BBM to the dated Android OS. There are still about 20% of Android users on Gingerbread especially in developing countries where BBM is still huge. Its nice to see BlackBerry looking to lower the bar below Android 4.0 for users who are not there yet.
Let us know if you are in the beta program!
