BlackBerry Messenger heading to Android and iOS this weekend! (NASDAQ:BBRY, NASDAQ:AAPL, NASDAQ:GOOG)

We have been hearing reports for months now that BlackBerry Messenger will be arriving on Android and iOS before the end of the summer, and we're not far away from those reports coming true. Today, a new report from the blog TeknoUp claims that BlackBerry will release BlackBerry Messenger on Android this coming Friday, September 20.

The leak appears to be credible as the blog has posted an entire schedule for the BBM rollout to both Android and iOS. BBM for Android is set to launch this Friday at 7 AM EST, the same time that the accompanying website, BBM.com, goes live. Then on the following Saturday, September 21, BBM for iOS 6 and iOS 7 will roll out again at 7AM EST. The leak also says that the app will be free and feature most of BBM's features we saw showcased earlier this year during the BlackBerry 10 launch event.
