BBM for Android and iPhone landing page

BlackBerry still isn't quite ready to announce when its BlackBerry Messenger for Android and iOS apps will launch, but it certainly feels like they're getting close. Just days after user guides for both apps appeared online, a semi-complete landing page declaring that "BBM for Android and iPhone is here" briefly went live this morning on the Canadian version of BlackBerry's official website.

The page has since been yanked and now leads to a regular ol' sign-up page, but during the time that it was live, it included a list of BBM's highlight features, such as delivery and read receipts, photo messaging, voice notes and BBM Groups.  The page also mentioned that features like BBM Voice, BBM Video and screensharing will be made available to Android and iPhone users this fall. Rounding out the landing page was a FAQ with answers to basic BBM questions like "What is a PIN?," "Is BBM free?," and "How do I personalize my BBM profile?"

Right now we only know that BBM for Android and iOS is slated to arrive sometime this summer. There's only around a month of summer left at this point, and so if BlackBerry is planning to stick to its original launch window, it won't be long before the statement "BBM for Android and iPhone is here" is accurate. A second screenshot of the original page is available below along with links to both the Android and iPhone-specific pages, just in case you feel like bookmarking them for later F5-ing.
