    I'm in awe of how quickly and how many fakes keep appearing. And more to the point just HOW many people are stupid enough to keep downloading then and are rating them 5* because they are told to!

    Can't believe how many people have downloaded it. But I guess that shows its popular.

    The other thing I don't get is how many bull**** ratings can be given from seemingly spam accounts.

    It is officially Sunday local time in India. At least BB kept up that end of their release schedule.

    Its not that people are "stupid". Some of the apps have very high ratings, have the blackberry symbol, are named BBM, and when you click it you see "official blackerry messenger for android devices".

    It is stupid how the play store works and the fact that they let any retard with a PC bang out an app. It makes me miss iOS. Apparently there is no oversight whatsoever.

    Probably from one of the App stores of the countries that got them. My friend already installed BBM on her iPhone from the New Zealand App Store since she couldn't wait till it gets released in our App Store. She deleted now, says there are lots of bugs and she couldn't see any display pictures.

    If this delay is solely due to the marketplace being flooded with fakes... Then Google can learn a thing or two from Apple; as BBM launched in iTunes without any major delays!

    It's getting late in the day in North America, so I have a feeling we won't be seeing it today. I'd love to be proved wrong, though.

    It's 'early' again here in the UK and Saturday came and went. Other than some lame half hearted tweets from BBM there is no news, nothing.
    Will it arrive Sunday? Or will the flawless launch on iOS just a day after iPhone 5s came out just be all too convenient a coincidence for comfort.

    Pfft, anyone would think BB was gonna sell out to Apple..... Lol

    The most irritating thing is that the company has offered zero information about what's going on. Of course, that's all too common for companies these days. When something goes wrong, they clam up, offering nothing but utterly useless statements that everyone on the planet can see through.

    I can forgive companies having problems. We all have them. What I can't forgive is the complete lack of any real information about what's going on.

    Totally agree. The daft joke tweets with no info didn't help matters. Joking about not having to wait outside, and saying not long to go.... Followed by announcements that it was live for iOS.

    As a BB user its all too common to be left in the dark, but this can only damage BB's reputation outside its usual circle, just as its trying to salvage its name.

    Yep. Just tell us something. Hell, if they just said they were having problems and would launch 24 hours late, I could live with that, and I think most other people could as well, but to offer nothing but snarky tweets is inexcusable. Who's running their Twitter account, an immature high school kid?

    Totally agree.

    So in their own jokey childish fashion I tweeted this to them. Footage of their launch of BBM on Android...
