BBM for Android and iOS release date cat escapes bag

The free download of BBM for iOS and Android owners will be landing on June 27, so non-BlackBerry users can finally plan those riots they've been hankering after.

The release date was unveiled by T-Mobile UK, which tweeted the "great news" complete with smiley face and BBM hashtag. That's social media, folks.

Android users will need to be rocking at least Android Ice Cream Sandwich, while the app will only work for iOS users on iOS 6.

Extra extra

It will eventually offer some added extras like voice, screen share and video calling, but these won't be available from the get-go - you'll have to settle for regular ol' text-based messaging to begin with.
BlackBerry is hoping that it can tempt iOS and Android users away from iMessage and WhatsApp, but with these competing messaging services already well bedded in on devices, the 'Berry has a tough old fight on its hands.
