BGR has reported that RIM (Research In Motion) will launch its BlackBerry Messenger app and service for Android and iOS such as iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices soon. The source also claims that the RIM’s BBM will be launched for iOS devices including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch too along with one for Android.

As far as what Android and iOS users can look forward to, we’ve been told RIM will offer stripped down versions of the BBM experience BlackBerry owners know and love. That way, Android and iOS users can communicate with practically anyone who has a smartphone using BBM, but they might not be able to share photos, location, or videos (when RIM crosses that bridge). Users who want the full BlackBerry Messenger experience will still need a BlackBerry smartphone to get it. At the same time, RIM could own the entire messaging app category on every major smartphone OS platform and could potentially draw new users in because it has given them a taste of what BlackBerry Messenger is all about.

RIM considering to launch the product on Android earlier than iOS as they are all set with it, but still no word by the sources on its release date. However, the company’s big eye is definitely on the iOS platform.
