BlackBerry hasn’t made anything official just yet, but that didn’t stop T-Mobile UK from seemingly spilling the beans and tweeting a release date for BlackBerry Messenger for iOS and Android. BGR scooped the eventual arrival of cross-platform BBM ages ago, but BlackBerry finally confirmed it last month and said its popular messaging service would launch on iOS and Android this summer. According to T-Mobile UK, a firm date has now been set: June 27th. BBM will be free on both competing platforms, and it is unclear exactly what functionality will be carried over from the BlackBerry 10 version.
UPDATE: BlackBerry has told The Financial Post that the launch date specified by T-Mobile UK is not accurate. No other details were provided
