Samsung Nigeria Wants BBM for Android Before Others

Samsung Nigeria really wants to have the BBM for Android first on their devices before any other Samsung devices in the world and of course other Android devices. 

To support  the claim above, Samsung Nigeria (@samsungmobileng) made in a tweet late yesterday that Samsung would be getting the BBM app for Android three months ahead of other Android devices when it gets released on Friday 20th September as seen in the image below.

This tweet quickly raised some questions and got some folks confused and even made it look like BlackBerry is playing shady games.

However, on contacting the folks from BlackBerry, it was stated that BBM is not going to be released exclusively to any brand of device but would be available publicly to all Android devices for download in the Google Play Store.

Specifically in BlackBerry's statement:

"The excitement around the upcoming BBM launch on iPhone and Android devices seems to know no bounds. Although I’m a big fan of this passion, I want to clarify that no one will have an exclusive on offering BBM. We’ll be bringing the app to Android and iPhone users across the globe soon."

Apparently some guys over at Samsung Mobile Nigeria is way over his or her head to have made such a false and misleading statement: Perhap for advertising and bullying sake.
