BBM on iPhone and Android handsets? Happening or not?

The popular app for messaging called, whatelse, () is likely to make its way to iPhones and Android handsets. This was according to the story published by BGR.com.

For now, it is only BlackBerry users who enjoy the services of this app like group chat, instant messaging, location and music sharing.  Another bonus feature is that it doesn’t impost limited number of characters per message.

By expanding BBM on other mobile phone units, BlackBerry is bringing functionality of group messaging to a whole new level.

Here what BGR.com got to say about the move:

“As far as what Android and iOS users can look forward to, we’ve been told RIM will offer stripped down versions of the BBM experience BlackBerry owners know and love. That way, Android and iOS users can communicate with practically anyone who has a smartphone using BBM, but they might not be able to share photos, location, or videos (when RIM crosses that bridge). Users who want the full BlackBerry Messenger experience will still need a BlackBerry smartphone to get it. At the same time, RIM could own the entire messaging app category on every major smartphone OS platform and could potentially draw new users in because it has given them a taste of what BlackBerry Messenger is all about.”

The rumor about the expansion of the BBM is still vague. Better check on here regularly so you can BBM the news to your friends once it is confirmed.
