BlackBerry silently rolled out its BlackBerry Messenger service to Android and iOS earlier this week and today the company announced that within the first 24 hours, the app saw over 10 million downloads. The free app has been slated to arrive on both platforms for more than a year now, and has been delayed due to bugs and financial troubles.

The 10 million downloads were spread out over more than 75 countries including the US, UK and Canada, and BlackBerry is calling the launch a success and "one of the best single-day app launches to date." While we are not so sure about that claim, the fact that the app has received a 4.2 rating on Google Play means that BlackBerry may still have a product that people want to buy. Maybe the future of BlackBerry truly is in software and not hardware.
