With BBM already on the top two platforms i.e. Android and iOS, the next logical step was heading to Windows Phone. According to BlackBerry this move is in response to demands by Windows Phone users on Facebook and Twitter for the popular messaging app to be launched for WP.

However, this may also be in response to the acquisition of its competitor, the WhatsApp Messenger by Facebook for $16 billion dollars last week. One big selling point of WhatsApp is its cross platform support, which makes many users to consider it an alternative for traditional SMS.
