Remember months ago how these same users literally carried RIM name in the drain ….now they’re re-sending bbm requests. But now you can delete them all over again.
BlackBerry can’t catch a break. The company had to abandon plans to launch BlackBerry Messenger for Android and iOS devices over the weekend after it ran into trouble with the rollout.
The official app, which was scheduled to launch Saturday, doesn’t have this glitch, but BlackBerry didn’t want to release it unless it could block the unofficial version. Blocking the unreleased version, however, proved problematic as it quickly snagged more than 1 million users. As a result, the company decided to pause the rollout of both BBM for Android and iOS.
“The team is now focused on adjusting the system to completely block this unreleased version of the Android app when we go live with the official BBM for Android app,” Bocking said. “We are also making sure that the system is reinforced to handle this kind of scenario in the future. While this may sound like a simple task, it’s not. This will take some time and I do not anticipate launching this week.”
Consumers can check on the launch status through BlackBerry’s official blog, the BBM Web site, and the BBM Twitter feed.
Isn’t it funny how Android & IOS users are quite eager to return. Hmmmmm isn’t all the numerous apps entertaining enough or is there a dying need to view “BBM Recent Updates”.
Trini Translation of Never See Cumsy – Someone recently exposed to something new thus goes to ridiculous extremes.
