This would have been a much bigger deal a couple years back, but BlackBerry Messenger is indeed coming to iOS and Android later this year, and we now have the first photo of what it will look like.

BlackBerry has publicly announced that BlackBerry Messenger for iOS and Android is set to be released sometime before the end of summer. BGR exclusively reported that BlackBerry was building BlackBerry Messenger for iOS and Android over two years ago.
