bbm-for-allBlackBerry made its BlackBerry Messenger [BBM] app for Android and Apple devices available earlier this week after having to postpone the launch in September, with more than 10 million downloads taking place in its first two days online.

Social media has been filled with Bermudians discussing the new launch, with countless status updates of people posting their new ‘pin’ numbers and discussions about the new cross platform capability
