    At the moment, Android 4.4 KitKat is the latest version of Android at the moment, but at the same time chances are there are probably smartphone users out still running on older builds of Android. There can be a variety of reasons behind this, such as the decision not to change to a newer device because either it costs too much, or they really love their current device at the moment. Either way there are users out there who might be running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread or maybe even older, a possibility that we cannot discount, and it seems that it is a possibility that BlackBerry cannot discount either, especially given that Android 2.3 Gingerbread is still installed on about 21% of Android devices out there. That also means there is a large audience out there who are unable to use BBM due to Gingerbread not meeting BlackBerrys requirements, but it looks like BlackBerry is hoping to change that. In an email sent out by BlackBerry, they are currently seeking beta testers who might still have Android devices running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread to help test their BBM app. Of course theres no telling how this might work out as Gingerbread might simply be too old to provide a good experience for the user, but either way its good to know that BlackBerry is trying nonetheless.: BlackBerry Might Be Considering BBM For Android 2.3 Gingerbread Devices | Ubergizmo

    I'd rather they focus on getting BBM Video and Screen share for iOS and Android. But I can see where they are coming from given the number of people still using Gingerbread.

    I hope so, I was a long time BB user, just couldn't fall in love with the Q10, and being on Sprint, had no choice , I'm missing BBM channels more than voice right now.

    What a pity! Android BBM supports gingerbread now but it's older version that doesn't came with voice chat and many many emoticons. I use BBM to talk with my girlfriend daily so that's really a big obstacle.
