BBM for Android had been confirmed by BlackBerry to arrive this summer and considering that it’s the month of July already, we still haven’t seen any sign of it. Although it was rumored to appear on the 27th of June, which was tweeted and deleted by T-Mobile UK BlackBerry still maintains a firm stance on the summer release announcement. It seems that there has been a misunderstanding about the “summer” part.
Much recently, during the BlackBerry Q5 announcement, Sunil Lalvani the managing director of BlackBerry India was asked regarding BBM for Android and not surprisingly he reiterated that it was going to appear later this Summer. After further pushing him for a more specific date or month, he made clear that he was actually talking about the “summer as per North America, where it remains till September”.

The summer as per North America officially ends at September 21 so it’s going to be available before that date, which is around two months away from today until we see the application available in the Play Store. Lets hope it isn’t the summer as per Australia if we don’t see it later on.
