UPDATE: RIM just reached out to us saying that the post in MacRumors is a hoax. Jim Balsillie did not speak in Toronto today, so there was definitely no mention of BBM on iPhone.
However, it’s still likely BBM will be on iPhone and Android soon, as previously reported.
EARLIER: A user on the MacRumors Forums claims that RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie spoke at a social media conference today in Toronto and let slip that Blackberry Messenger (BBM) would be coming to the App Store on April 26th.
If it weren’t to be released free, BGR reported, RIM could charge a one-time fee or a recurring fee (which Apple would take a 30% bite out of).
Balsillie also alluded to “other services” coming to iOS this month, which could take the form of BBM groups, calendars, location sharing, and more.
