Yes at last the waiting is over. Now Blackberry Messenger is ready for download for both IOS phone and android phones. The only catch here is you will need to queue in line for your BBM be online. The blackberry developer use this line to manage the growth of the users. Good tactics but it is killing to wait for activation. As mention on the blackberry blog, if you already sign up the notification last few months in their site then you don’t have to queue anymore (as what I did) , but if not then you will be in the waiting list. Happy waiting then. ha2. There is actually some tips how to bypass the waiting list but I tried and it doesn’t work.

Basically the interface is ok and after fiddling a while I am able to use the apps quite well.

I can see the end of Blackberry hardware this year but hopefully more innovation is coming for the blackberry messenger.
