For me blackberry pretty much died a few years ago. When you have Android and IOS with thousands of apps it didnt make sense to me to retain my blackberry. One thing I admit I miss is the blackberry messenger. Its alternative, Whatsapp ofcourse is there but somehow I still preferred BBM.
Blackberry 10 launch event is scheduled for the 30th of January, 2013 so most of the company’s concentration has been geared towards that however that has now stopped RIM from rolling out a major update to BBM. BBM7 will now include BBM voice which is free Wifi calling between all blackberry messengers. The BBM Voice features are built directly into BBM, meaning you would only open up a chat window with a contact and then tap a BBM Voice button to initiate a call.
There is no doubt that this is an extremely useful feature especially for those using BBM to communicate across countries.
BBM 7 and BBM voice are only available for free to Blackberry users via RIM’s Blackberry Beta Zone Website. Unfortunately Blackberry Beta Zone isnt available in all regions as yet so this would only be available to Blackberry users in supported countries.
