BlackBerry might have experienced a slump in sales back in 2013 but the company is trying pretty hard to bring its reputation to its initial glory. The Canadian smartphone maker has already unveiled its latest two smartphones at the MWC 2014 just a coupe of days back. And at the same time its BBM messaging app is also becoming widely popular.
Just recently, the company has already announced to make the same app available for the Windows Phone devices soon. Also it has been confirmed the app for the Nokia X platform, which will be made available soon in the market.
Now spilling some information about the app coming to Nokia's Asha devices, David Proulx, BlackBerry's senior director of BBM reportedly said, BlackBerry would be willing to bring its instant messaging service on Asha phone. This is pretty much going to be a great news for the Asha smartphone owners across the world. He also added, "We want BBM to be as broadly available as possible so in this context, I wouldn't rule anything out, especially considering the great partnership we have forged with Nokia this week."
BBM has already become popular among the Android and iOS users. And now Canadian QWERTY smartphone giant in collaboration with Nokia might hit another chunk of smartphone users with the app. This might push the apps popularity to the heights of where WhatsApp is soaring right now. In other words, this might be a great threat for the now Facebook-owned WhatsApp messaging app.
