BBM for Windows Phone launch window

The launch of BBM on Windows Phone has received a window, according to media reports

By - June 20, 2014

BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) for Windows Phone will launch during July 2014, CrackBerry reported, citing an earnings call with BlackBerry CEO John Chen.

BlackBerry announced in February that a Windows Phone version of its popular instant messaging platform was on its way after revealing that it will be available on the Nokia X Android-based smartphone.

The expected launch on Windows Phone follows the arrival of BBM on Android and iPhone in October 2013.

BBM’s arrival on Android and iPhone was not a smooth affair, but the abortive launch will hopefully not be repeated on Windows Phone.
