    The first time BlackBerry spoke about the BBM instant messaging app for Windows Phone device was back in February at the International Mobile World Congress 2014. But the Canadian smartphone maker didn't announce anything pertaining to that anytime soon. But by the end of March, BlackBerry officially announced its quarterly report for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2014 alongside the announcement pertaining to its popular instant messaging app the BBM.

    The smartphone maker then said that the BBM app and service will come pre-loaded on Nokia Lumia devices in certain markets, following the official release on the Windows Phone platform.

    Now the recent report coming from Twitter user BlackBerry Leaks suggests that "BBM for Windows Phone is finally available for testers." If you look back to all the developments and try to put the pieces together, the app might get launched sooner than expected.

    However, BlackBerry has yet to officially confirm the news about BBM app for Windows Phone devices. And the company might not speak about it until a public test version of the mobile client is made available for download.

    With BBM for Windows Phone finally hitting testing phase, it's clear that it might be a few months away from a final release too, and the timing fits with what Microsoft announced for the new OS version. Both of them should be ready for deployment this summer.
