While Blackberry devices are sinking faster than the Titanic, its iconic messenger app (Blackberry Messenger aka BBM) is very much alive at least in some parts of the world (not in the US) and last year Blackberry decided to revitalize its messenger service by releasing iOS and Android versions and of course no Windows Phone version was released at the time.
They did announce that a WP version would be coming out this summer, this news was very welcomed in parts of the world were Lumia devices and BBM are still very popular (countries like Nigeria, India, Indonesia...)
Today you can spot the BBM app in the Windows Phone store but you will not have permission to download it just yet. No one know when this restriction will be removed, it could be tomorrow or it could be at the end of the month.
It is a Beta version of the app and until thorough testing has been done, we do not know when it will be made public, it could be days, weeks or even months.
Also there is no word on how you can register to become a beta tester.
One thing is certain, anxious BBM fans will be checking the download button every minute in anticipation.
