BBM Powerful, Interactive, and future potential.
The other day Crackberry.com posted a question/poll to their readers regarding BBM.
CrackBerry Poll: Should RIM make BlackBerry Messenger available to non-BlackBerry smartphones?
Sure they meant well … but I suggest to think deeper. RIM, why not make BBM desktop compatible for multiple platforms: Windows XP/7, Mac OS X Leopard/Snow Leopard/Lion, and also Linux compatible. Let users on the desktop communicate, share photos/videos [small], happy faces etc … taking desktop IM to a new level and making it mobile. Apple only concentrated on Video … I’ve suggested this almost a year ago in one of my posts on this blog yet I cannot recall where though.
Maybe, just maybe RIM should expand BBM within their ranks – NOT to other platforms – to include … wait for it … a mobile website/blog. Nokia had this in beta for over yrs but it didn’t take off amongst its users; yet it was immensely powerful and interactive and live. User if allowed by the mobile site owner [you] could snap pictures remotely of your device – even setting time ranges of this allowance.
