BBM for Windows Phone available to beta testers

Android and iOS devices already have access to BlackBerry’s cross-platform messaging app, but the Windows Phone version hasn’t quite arrived yet.

BlackBerry has now revealed the app is now available to download in beta form, but it’s only available to those who signed up for the Windows Phone beta program. If you were accepted into the beta, you can download BBM from the Windows Phone Store right now and start submitting your feedback. However, if you didn’t sign up or didn’t get accepted onto the beta program, you could be in for a bit of a wait.

BlackBerry confirmed that the
BBM for Windows Phone beta is “currently at capacity”, but the company “will be working through our waiting list.” The company does plan to have the full version for Windows Phone soon though. “Windows Phone customers won’t have to wait long, BBM for Windows Phone will be available shortly,” added BlackBerry. Those able to download it now are encourage to submit feedback through the BlackBerry Beta Zone and anyone eligible will have already been emailed about the known bugs in the app.

R.I.P. Symbian

Nokia announced in October it will be ending all developer support for MeeGo and Symbian on January 1, 2014. Well, the deadline has passed and the Ovi Store won’t accept any more apps.

Nokia announced the end of the era via the official Symbian Team account on Twitter. That was it; we are officially closed. Thank you all for the past years! — Symbian Signed Team (@ SymbianSigned)

In case you’ve missed the news, the dropped MeeGo/Symbian support and app publishing means developers will be no longer capable of pushing new
apps or updates in the Ovi Store. They will continue to receive revenue from their apps, of course, and all currently available apps in the Store will remain available for download.

So, if you are interested the Ovi Store is still open and your device isn’t rendered worthless just yet. But maybe, just maybe, it’s about time you jumped ship.
