#BBM for Android and iPhone Update: Confirms Not Coming For At Least Another Week.

pihak blackberry ternyata benar-benar tidak siap dengan rencana peluncuran #bbm lintas platform buat perangkat ios dan android, setelah tanggal 21 kemarin menunda-nunda rilis aplikasi resmi bbm for android saat ini bahkan menarik kembali aplikasi resmi bbm for iphone yang sudah diposting di apple apps store, sekarang bahkan ada pernyataan resmi dari head of bbm blackberry (andrew bocking) yang menyatakan aplikasi messenger bbm listas platform tersebut belum tentu rilis resmi minggu minggu ini.

aplikasi bbm for iphone meskipun sudah ditarik dari apple app store tetapi pemilik iphone masih bisa menggunakan aplikasi tersebut buat chatting (meskipun juga masih ada bugs) tetapi masih beruntung dibanding pengguna android yang belum mencicipi aplikasi resmi bbm for android (meskipun pernah beredar di internet versi bocorannya).

andrew bocking sebagai head of bbm bahkan menyalahkan pengguna android yang menggunakan aplikasi non resmi tersebut yang menyebabkan peningkatan pesat jumlah pesan bbm dan membuat sistem bbm jadi bermasalah. seperti kita ketahui, mendekati rilis resmi bbm for android ada sekitar 1,1 juta pengguna android yang mendownload dan menggunakan aplikasi non resmi tersebut dan blackberry tak bisa memblokirnya sampai akhirnya menunda semua peluncuran aplikasi bbm for android maupun iphone.

berikut rilis resmi dari head of bbm blackberry andrew bocking yang diposting di blog resmi blackberry

Hi Android and iPhone users,  

This is Andrew Bocking, head of BBM at BlackBerry. As a follow up to our first blog post on Saturday, I want to take a moment to provide you with an update on the rollout of BBM on Android and iPhone. Last week, an unreleased, older version of the BBM for Android app was posted on numerous file sharing sites. We were aware of an issue with this unreleased version of the BBM for Android app. This older version resulted in volumes of data traffic orders of magnitude higher than normal for each active user and impacted the system in abnormal ways. The version we were planning to release on Saturday addressed these issues, however we could not block users of the unreleased version if we went ahead with the launch.  We attempted to address the problems caused by the unreleased version throughout the day on Saturday, but as active users of the unreleased app neared a million – and accelerated – it became clear that the only way to address the issue was to pause the rollout for both Android and iPhone.  The team is now focused on adjusting the system to completely block this unreleased version of the Android app when we go live with the official BBM for Android app. We are also making sure that the system is reinforced to handle this kind of scenario in the future. While this may sound like a simple task – it’s not. This will take some time and I do not anticipate launching this week.  Thank you for your patience while we take the time needed to deliver the experience you expect from BBM. We will continue to provide you with updates here on InsideBlackBerry.com and through @BBM on Twitter. We will notify everyone who has pre-registered on BBM.com when BBM is available on Android and iPhone.  

Andrew Bocking 

EVP, BBM
