From this weekend, users will no longer need to own a Blackberry device to access its BBM messaging service.

Blackberry has confirmed BBM will be available as a free download for Apple and Android devices but not for Windows phones.

Much of the negativity around BlackBerry doesn't have any basis in reality.

They haven't been as successful as Apple and the iPhone, but then nor has any other company in history.

Hard to compete against Apples slave labor force in China or Their rather uninformed fan base...IMHO

No fan of MS as the whole world knows but I've noticed the MS TV ad series for their Ipad offers direct comparisons to Apple's...

continues to go unanswered and definitely makes MS offering look twice as good as half the price... any word on how Apples I-pad is fairing in the competition?

It looks like BlackBerry is sold in to private ownership.
