BBM coming to Windows Phone, desktop and the web?

After iPhone and Android versions, BlackBerry
is exploring other platforms for its BBM client.
According to BlackBerry Scoop , the Canadian
company may be working to bring its app to
new places, including Windows Phone and
tablets (iPad and Android). Moreover, a
desktop app may also be in works as well as a
web version that should work across different
devices (as long as they have a web browser).
It makes sense to have an IM client accessible
on as many platforms as possible and we do
think BlackBerry is onto something with such
strategy. It can’t make money from selling
phones, perhaps it will able to do so from
offering low-cost phone calls, and eventually
turn into a VoIP provider. Hopefully that won’t
be the case, but it’s a good idea to have a
diverse income sources, nonetheless…
