RIM Possibly bringing BBM to Android, iOS?

Woah! Here’s one for the rumor mill – There’s apparently talk of RIM (the company that produce BlackBerry’s) bringing their famed BBM (Black Berry Messenger) Service to both Android AND iOS devices (iphone, ipod, ipad). It will reportedly be a stripped down version of the service, but it will still allow you to BBM with your BlackBerry friends (not so exclusive now eh…).

Whether this rumor pans out, remains to be seen, but we’ve got our fingers crossed for this (though in reality we highly doubt this will ever happen). We think while this would be pretty cool, it leaves BlackBerry giving their biggest “Win Factor” away to other competitors, which we wouldn’t do. But, like we said.. it’s just a rumor for now.
