    So it sounds like they've put the brakes on everything until further notice. Interesting that they also pulled the iOS app.

    Oh well, it was fun while it lasted...

    I suspect it will be up by 9AM EST (fingers crossed), however, the reason for the delay was the impatient users who installed the leak.
    The leak caused issues, and now because of some BlackBerry has to pause the rollout to fix the issues.

    Yeah, but that doesn't explain also pulling the iOS app.

    Yeah, neither do I.
    Maybe the leaked version and OTHER attributes screwed something up?

    i saw their statement.

    It sounds to me they discovered an unexpected bug thanks to the leaked version.

    Either way this shows to me they weren't ready for prime time.

    There was a 'bug' for me but I didn't think much of it because I knew it wasn't the official release. I couldn't turn vibrate on and turn music updates off.

    EDIT: I meant there is a bug as I've still got BBM installed and those bugs are still present.

    While those are definitely bugs, they wouldn't be severe enough to halt a launch. Whatever happened today was a show-stopper. I'm guessing that they discovered that the apps and servers didn't play well together. I'm also willing to bet that both the leaked apk and the release version had the same issue. In fact they're likely identical versions. It could be that the initial delay was related to the Play Store rejecting the app because someone had already uploaded the leaked version, but, as the leaked version was downloaded by more and more people, the engineers may have noticed adverse effects on the servers and realized that the release version would have the same effect. At that point, they'd have had no other choice but to halt the release until they can fix the problem.

    So they said they'll pause the global roll out of BBM for iPhone until the Android issue gets resolved. And then will they start rolling it out for Android users or will they continue where they left off with the iPhone version? Need someone to clarify for me.

    As soon as we are able, we will begin a staggered country roll-out of BBM for Android and continue the roll-out of BBM for iPhone. These issues have not impacted BBM service for BlackBerry.

    Probably because of the way the Play Store is set up. Unlike the Apple App Store, where every app must be approved before being made publicly available, anyone can post to the Play Store. Reviews are only done if someone reports an app to Google. And since there's no real punishment for getting your app removed, the scammers just keep putting them out there.

    Maybe Google should require a deposit before a developer can post an app. If the app doesn't get pulled after a certain amount of time, they get their deposit back. If it does get pulled, they lose it. That would stop a lot of this crap.

    If something like that happen, developers find other alternatives. It is not their fault that Google won't invest in a vetting process like Apple does. It will also encourage developers to start favoring Apple again. It won't stop the garbage either, they will just wait till they get their deposit and zap people with an update.

    Seems to me like no one at RIM knows what they doing more like let's do this and see how it goes, They just weren't ready for the launch period, how can a leaked android apk affect the entire launch. Probably didn't have enough servers to launch BBM cross platform. Anyone who had a twitter account could see the buzz around this launch and they failed to deliver
