BBM for iPhone: The Wait Isn’t Almost Over

BBM for iPhone: Last Friday, we published an article that had many people excited: BBM For iPhone: The Wait is Almost Over

BBM for iPhone: The Wait isn’t Almost Over

You may have been one the people who had been looking forward to the day where you could finally use BBM on your Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPLiPhone. Unfortunately, BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) has dropped the ball once again and has left millions upon millions of people disappointed.

In other words, BBM has yet to be made available for iPhone.

According to a recent blog post by BlackBerry, the company is “pausing the global roll-out of BBM for Android and iPhone.”

This is all despite the fact that BBRY is claiming plenty of “interest and enthusiasm” early on.

What is the deal? Why is BBM for iPhone being held back if so many people were waiting for the release?

BlackBerry said that an unreleased app posted online led to the issues. Although the company did not elaborate on the trouble, there are many who feel that the company was unable to deal with all of the traffic coming to its servers.

If this is true, it makes BlackBerry look even worse. You would expect the company to be prepared for everything, especially something as big as this.

Luke Reimer added the following on the BlackBerry blog:

“Our teams continue to work around the clock to bring BBM to Android and iPhone, but only when it’s ready and we know it will live up to your expectations of BBM.”

He went out to add that the company will begin a “staggered country roll-out” for both BBM for iPhone and Android once everything is set and ready to go.

Once again, BlackBerry has dropped the ball. At this point, it is not so much the reason for the trouble. What really matters is that the company is once again disappointing consumers.

For now, nobody knows for sure what delayed the release. It is likely related to several “fake” BBM apps hitting the Google Play app store.

When is BlackBerry finally going to get everything together? Right now, it seems like the company is heading down a path towards a bad ending.

This is just another disappointment for BlackBerry as well as those who are hoping to give the company their attention.

How long do you think these hedge fund managers will stick by BBRY? Prem Watsa, Douglass Dillard, and John Thaler.
