BBM hits Android Gingerbread devices
BlackBerry has announced that the BBM messaging app is available on Android Gingerbread devices. Android Gingerbread accounts for 20% of all Android devices so it makes sense that BlackBerry releases the messaging service for this platform. This translates to around 175 million devices since there are 877 million active Android devices. BBM hit around 80 million active users at the end of October after the messaging service arrived on iOS and Android.
