BlackBerry Sees Massive Demand For Leaked BBM For Android App, Delays Rollout
Of course, since the build wasn't final, it's causing some issues across Android phones. So, because it simply has too much attention on this app, it's halting the roll-out. BlackBerry has assured interested users that its engineering team is "working around the clock" to deliver final versions of BBM for Android and iPhone, and customers that have already downloaded BBM for iPhone will be able to continue to use BBM. The unreleased Android app will be disabled, and customers who downloaded it should visit www.BBM.com to register for updates on official BBM for Android availability.
Sadly, the company can't provide an ETA as to when final versions will be available, but it's certainly an odd problem to have: evidently, there's still tons of pent-up demand for the BBM messaging platform, which could turn out to be the company's most valuable piece of property if a sale goes through this year.
