To ensure roll out goes smoothly, BlackBerry is implementing a “line-up system.” Those who download the app will be required to enter their email address to hold a spot in line. When it’s your turn to activate the app, BlackBerry will send you an email letting you know the app is ready to use. If you signed up at BBM.com before today, you can skip the line entirely.
“Our team of developers and engineers has been working around the clock to bring you BBM,” writes BlackBerry in a blog post. The company also promises to bring upgrades to the app soon.
