Recently, 27 June was outed as the launch date forBlackBerry Messenger on iOS and Android. T-Mobile‘s UK Twitter feed delivered the news, tweeting, “BlackBerry Messenger will be available to download on iOS and Android from June 27th! :)” along with an alleged photograph of BBM on aSamsung Galaxy S4.
The tweet was later deleted, however and Wired.co.uk spoke to BlackBerry for more information. “While there have been reports that BBM will be available to iOS and Android on [27 June], this is not accurate. We will communicate an update as soon as we have an availability date to share.”
Historically, mobile networks know of launches for services that may affect its network performance or sales far ahead of time. As such, its not unlikely that T-Mobile’s “leaked” date of 27 June, if not eventually shown to be accurate despite BlackBerry’s denial, is a good indicator that a launch will be around that time.
T-Mobile was also contacted but the network declined to comment.
