BBM on Android Gingerbread 2.3 In The Works

BlackBerry is now making plans to release BBM for older Android devices specifically those running Android Gingerbread 2.3 on their phones. This was unveiled in a message sent to Blackberry messenger beta testers as shown in the image below. 

While those running Android version 4.0 and above on their devices are happy those running Android Gingerbread 2.3 feel like an outcast and that has generated into an outcry from these set of users. 

They have petitioned BlackBerry to make BBM available to Android 2.3 users and it seemed like that petition is accepted and now work have started to grant that wish.

If this plan actually pulls through, the immediate result is that there would be a surge in the number of users on the BBM sever.
