BBM Now Rumoured To Be Hitting the App Store On April 26th -- Negative, Says RIM

Labels: , , , , , ,

In the Mac Rumors forum there's, obviously, a new rumour that has been passing around. Apparently, in the Toronto event today, RIM's co-CEO, Jim Balsillie, mentioned that BBM "and 'services'" would be available on the iPhone App Store on April 26th. Of course, there's no way to confirm this but I hope it hits Android on the same day - which isn't looking too likely right now. Of course, the BBM for other platforms will just be a stripped down version so it might be a legitimate threat to other messaging services.

Update: BGR has contacted RIM and they mentioned that the rumour is false. RIM reportedly didn't even hold a conference in Toronto so it's absolutely made up.

We don't know when it will be available yet and the price is still unknown.

Labels: ,

It looks like Nokia's unannounced has just been spotted in the wild and even caught on video (below). Yes, that's right. It's the E6-00 which actually looks a lot like Nokia's QWERTY candybar phones - the E71. This one reportedly features a VGA touchscreen display, an 8MP camera with a dual-LED flash, a front-facing camera, and the Symbian OS. Sadly, it's not running WP7 so this one will be obsolete in less than a year. If you want, you can always check out the video below.
