If you’re one of the many still rocking Gingerbread on your Android device and into installing a leaked version of BBM that might possibly crash BlackBerry’s servers, then this news might be important for you.
Earlier this week BlackBerry announced that a ‘special release of BBM for Android smartphones running Gingerbread’ is currently in beta and will officially launch sometime in February. If you can’t wait, and we take no responsibility for what happens to your device, a leaked beta version of BBM for Gingerbread (OS 2.3.3 or higher) has found its way online. According to N4BB, this version lacks BBM Channels and BBIDs are not whitelisted (not sure why BlackBerry didn’t do this), and there’s also a few minor UI tweeks.
