Several pictures were leaked online showing the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) running on an Android device.
According to TechnoBuffalo, a Research in Motion (RIM) employee was shown the latest version of BBM for Android. He was testing the BBM on a BlackBerry Android developer phone.
As the authenticity of the photos could not be verified, do take these images with a pinch of salt. After all, BBM is one of the main feature of RIM's BlackBerry smartphones.
Letting it run on another mobile phone platform may add more woes than benefit for RIM. We also do not know how BBM will compete with WhatsApp, which is a cross platform instant messaging service that is used by many today.
