BlackBerry Messenger Spreading to Windows Phone
With the recent release of BlackBerry Messenger 2.0 earlier this month, BlackBerry is showing that it is fully committed to supporting its free messaging application across multiple devices. Currently, BlackBerry Messenger is available for BlackBerry, Android, and iOS devices. A new announcement made by BlackBerry at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona notes that the messaging application will be coming to Windows Phone devices this summer. Users of the Windows Phone operating system will be able to download BlackBerry Messenger through the Windows Store. The application will allow for free voice calls over Wi-Fi or a mobile data connection with BlackBerry Messenger contacts, provide chat capabilities with one other person or groups of up to 50 individuals, and more.
Also announced by BlackBerry is that the messaging application will be available for the Nokia X once it officially launches.
