Nokia seemingly asked BlackBerry about it,
Conversations also broached the idea of BBM on Asha and hence unifying the messaging service across all Nokia devices.
To which BlackBerry replied,
“We want BBM to be as broadly available as possible so in this context, I wouldn’t rule anything out, especially considering the great partnership we have forged with Nokia this week.”
BBM will be much welcomed by Asha owners in many markets like South Africa, where both BBM and Asha devices are much in use.
