Blackberry Messenger maybe available on Android

A particular feature is the proprietary messaging service that comes with the Blackberry mobile maybe soon available on Android devices, later followed by Apple iOS devices.

This speculation/prediction comes out of the Boy Genius Report and gains momentum from the news that Research in Motion (RIM) will be designing and implementing a “Android emulator” in their line of tablet to enable a large amount of apps straight out of the gate for the new PlayBook tablet device.

The Blackberry Messaging (BBM) at the moment allows users to send simple messages to each other using the devices PIN code as an addressing identifier, bypassing conventional methods like SMS.

How this would be accomplished on non-Blackberry devices is yet to be determine or even announced but is it enough for RIM to stay competitive and relevant in such competitive time in the mobile device market? We will just have to wait and see.
