BlackBerry few days back announced that BBM will be soon available on iOS and android platform. The app was set to be launched on 21st or 22nd September 2013. Micromax made a separate page on their official site few days back stating – Scratching your head over Ping Ping? So today we got to know that Micromax was talking about BBM app which will be soon available as a per-installed app on all of the canvas devices. As we all know that Micromax currently offers around 5-6 per-installed apps and now BBM will be one of them.
This also marks the end of Micromax own app Hookup! which is also preloaded in the Micromax smartphones. Micromax currently holds the same amount of shares as Samsung do so BBM will get quite good amount of users here in India alone through Micromax mobiles. Not to forget BBM was one of the most popular IM way back when few IM apps were available. With the intervention of apps like whatsapp, Viber, BBM started losing its shine but it is still in the market with good response.
On this special occasion Micromax VP, Deepak Mehrotra said:
We have built a strong mobile ecosystem for our users, which not only drives them to buy our products, but also builds a connection with the brand by massifying and democratizing technology in India. Bringing one of the most popular mobile messaging services with BBM on our smartphones is yet another effort to expand our bouquet of messaging services for our consumers to connect and communicate seamlessly with their loved ones. We will continue to drive innovation ensuring that our customers have preferential access to the latest and most exciting applications such as the BBM in the future as well.
BlackBerry Managing Director, India, Sunil Lalvani also commented :
BBM offers customers a highly engaging mobile messaging experience, with the assurance that your message has been delivered and read, and privacy controls that let you easily connect with people without forcing you to give out your phone number or email address. We are delighted to work with Micromax to bring BBM to their customers directly on Canvas smartphones across India.
