BlackBerry Messenger going to hit Android and iOS this year

The famous BlackBerry Messenger service will be launching on iOS and Android sometime this Summer.

The new cross-platform app will support iOS devices running iOS 6 or above and Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) and above.  This is a big step for BlackBerry, as it will allow users of BBM to communicate with friends that are using different platforms.

The app will support multi-person conversations, voice note sharing and BlackBerry Groups. BlackBerry Groups allows you to set up a group for up to 30 people, in which you can share calendars, photos and various other files.
