BlackBerry Messenger for Android coming first to Samsung Galaxy devices in Africa

Whether or not you agree that BlackBerry Messenger for Android is something to be excited about, it is now on its way. And the first batch of Android-powered devices that will offer it will come in the form of Samsung’s Galaxy-branded tablets and smartphones across Africa. This is according to a recent online press release which was brought to our attention by N4BB.com.

According to Samsung Electronics Africa VP and COO George Ferreira, the decision to start offering BBM for Galaxy device users in Africa came about because of Samsung’s commitment to “collaboration, innovation and driving consumer experience.” So soon, BBM will become part of the Samsung Messenger Hub, giving users yet another option for connecting with others and facilitating primarily text-based messaging.

If you want to know exactly how Samsung plans to let users in on that sweet old BBM goodness, you need only to watch out for the official release of BBM for Android-powered Samsung Galaxy devices through both the official Google Play Store and Samsung’s very own app store. It will be available as a free download for all, and will surely be released for users in other regions (though at a still unconfirmed date) at a later time.
