BBM_featuredNokia has hinted in a Nokia Conversations article that BBM, which has been announced coming to Nokia X and Lumia range of Nokia smartphones, may be coming to Nokia Asha range of devices too.

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.
