What's the point of all the intro text written by Staff Writer? We don't need to read the same thing twice (copy paste operation). The press release itself from RIM would have sufficed. MyBB added nothing new to this press release - no new info, context, or any form of journalistic effort.
In any case, from what I gather, this just allows BB developers to integrate their apps with BBM. We're still waiting for RIM to open up BBM to other platforms and devices. The BBM API needs be opened up. If they don't do it soon, RIM's current downfall will be accelerated even further.
