SAMSUNG GALAXY USERS IN AFRICA TO GET BBM FIRST BEFORE OTHERS

By

In a new twist to the cross-platform BBM story besides the fact that June has come and we still haven't gotten the app, Samsung has gone into partnership with BlackBerry to make the app available for free to Galaxy device users first, when it is finally available. The BBM app would be a Samsung Galaxy exclusive for a while before it finally becomes available for other android users in the continent.

The wait for the BBM app would soon be over as it already available to a few beta testers and would roll out to others in a few weeks. The BBM app would eventually be available to everyone using  an android device running Android 4.0+ (that's ICS and JB).

I think it's great that Samsung is really taking serious steps in enriching tge experiences in their Galaxy line with app exclusives.
