Exclusive: BlackBerry Messenger will launch on Android and iOS
Over the past few weeks we’ve heard of Android applications running on Blackberry devices and this week we hear Blackberry Messenger to start running on iOS and Android devices. Can it be true will RIM open up one of their main USPs to their rivals in the smartphone market?  Or are RIM just trying to reduce the cross platform barriers that currently plague the smartphone market?
