Gadgetpark – The rumors about BlackBerry 10 had an impact on the development of the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). This time, RIM announced it will launch the service BBM Money to transfer between users.
BBM Money allows BlackBerry users to conduct direct transactions pear-to-pear. These services will be launched for the first in Indonesia. Why Indonesia first? There are a number of reasons, including the prevalence of BlackBerry devices in that country. RIM has a strong foothold there, claiming a 56 percent market share.
However, until now the rumors about the launch of BBM Money is still in talks. Many people argue that the service will be introduced in conjunction with the introduction of BB10 in early 2013.
Managing Director of RIM’s South Asia operations Hastings Singh said that the company will be launching BBM Money in Indonesia first beginning “shortly,” allowing anyone with a BlackBerry to transfer money directly to other BlackBerry owners.
