Official BBM For Android APK Download Link and Caution Before Switching Sides
UPDATE 21 Oct 2013: BBM for Android has launched officially in Africa but seems to be exclusive to Samsung users for now via the Samsung Apps store. I've uploaded the apk file for you guys and it's at the end of this post. Do please note that for now BlackBerry seems to be giving access only to those that registered for the BBM Launch alert via www.bbm.com. For those of you that successfully registered the last time, I don't know if this will work right now for you.
The download should be officially available via Google Play Store anytime soon.
All the issues I had with the previous BBM leak like pinging android users from blackberries have been fixed. There's still no voice/video chat for now but you can send any file format as I successfully sent an apk and xls file without issues. Also no BBM Channels yet
The BBM Connected icon in the notification bar can be turned off under settings but doing so would lead to BBM messages not being delivered or there could be a delay in delivery especially if device memory is low.
Below are a few screenshots of the official BBM for Android registration process
Do Not Sell Your BlackBerry Device For An Android Device Unless ..........
The Android device you plan on buying runs a least Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS and you can afford to spend more than N3,000 monthly on data. For now there are no dedicated data plans for android devices though there are rumors that MTN Nigeria is working on one to allow for unlimited pinging on Android.
If you download loads of music and mobile movies on your Blackberry device, do not sell it and switch to android. You will cry later when your android starts to show you pepper in terms of data consumption.
