I thought the same exact words! This would have been huge then. Now they lost their chance and got replaced.

they can take it back quick with this, the downside is their is even less of a reason to get a BB phone.

BB10 is still the best in class they said,
the iPhone is outdated they said, they are not going to offer cheap phones they said...now what?

That just had to happen.. This will probably(although i hope not) decrease the usage of whatsapp.. I hate BBM.. hate blackberry. so i really hope it isn't a big success...

I can't see a reason for this at all. I feel like Blackberry is too far behind Android and iOS now days.

whats the point of this.
everyone i know is using whatsapp or kik messenger mostly coz it supports every type of smartphone in the market.

this is really a bit late from RIM. like 3 years too late.

i sense desperation is strong with this one.

finally!!! but i think this well spell the end of Blackberry in most places! here in the UK only reason some kids have blackberry is because of bbm

What's the point, at this point? The iPhone has imessage, Android has their own version coming probably *tomorrow* and almost the whole Blackberry community has moved on already. Only people using BBM will be those telling their friends to get rid of their Blackberry.

So have they finally admitted defeat?

Blackberry are absolute tools with little business sense at all, BBM is huge in Europe, lots of people still use blackberry devices and love BBM, what will be the point of owning a Blackberry when you have just made your biggest piece of software available on your rivals devices, makes no sense unless its gonna be packed with ads, but still makes little sense, it seems there trying there hardest to run themselves into the ground.
