BBM for Android headed to Samsung Apps store in a few hours
If you’ve been following the release of BlackBerry Messenger for Android, you’re most likely aware that the initial launch was scrapped, after a leaked Android APK of the app crashed BlackBerry’s servers. Well, in a few hours, the rollout of BBM is about to resume, and this time, it’s bringing along a queue system, wherein you’ll have to register and wait a while before BlackBerry grants you access for using the app and start messaging your friends.
Well, unless you’re a Samsung device user in the Sub-Saharan Africa region, in which case you’ll be able to download BBM from the Samsung Apps store and start using it immediately. The wait time, by default, is only applicable to those who registered on BBM.com before the previous launch of the app, but even if you didn’t do that, you still gain instant access if you’re in the aforementioned continent.
So, just a few hours before BBM is live and yours for the taking, without the need to have a BlackBerry device. Here’s hoping the launch goes smoothly this time around.
