We are getting more of a taste for BlackBerry’s plans for BBM Protected and I am liking what I see. Zek let us know that BlackBerry is pitching a 30 day free trial to customers on BES 5 and BES 10 to try out the new platform between now and October 31st. The whole program lasts until November 30th so it should give BlackBerry some time to put this in front of customers. Thanks Zek at BB10.ch for pointing it out and making the trial sign up document available.
On top of that we are hearing from India that the cost for BBM Protected is being pitched as $30/year per device on any device that BBM supports. That is a pretty compelling price point especially if BlackBerry throws in some sort of secure voice calling with their new acquisition.
What do you think of BBM Protected?
