Nimbuzz releases new app for BB10
Dubai, February 13, 2013
Nimbuzz, one of the largest and fastest growing mobile communications platforms in the world, has announced the release of its Nimbuzz messaging app for BlackBerry 10.
The redesigned application is the only messaging platform to integrate GTalk, Yahoo and Facebook Messenger into a single BlackBerry application, enabling users to send unlimited chat messages and share pictures or videos files across any mobile device.
With more than 20 million smartphones projected to run on BlackBerry 10 by 2013, according to ABI Research, Nimbuzz will provide BlackBerry 10 device and PlayBook users, free access to group and ‘peer-to-peer’ messaging, entertainment through the N-World, multimedia sharing, and social integration.
BlackBerry selected Nimbuzz as a pre-launch recipient of its new SDK, providing advanced tools and resources to maximise its impact across all BlackBerry 10 devices, including an expedited review process from BlackBerry World.
“BlackBerry must continue to identify and promote the most successful and unique apps that already reach millions of users worldwide – this focus on advanced functionality and developer engagement will be a catalyst to the platform’s success,” said Vikas Saxena, Nimbuzz CEO.
“As an early pioneer in mobile communications, and a long-time BlackBerry developer, Nimbuzz will continue to deliver a powerful, feature-rich experience to BlackBerry users.”
Nimbuzz has more than 100 million users around the world, with more than 210,000 new registrations daily. The cross-platform mobile messaging and entertainment app allows users to message, video, call and share data – across nearly any mobile device or computer.
Users enjoy free Nimbuzz-to-Nimbuzz communication and sharply discounted rates to phone numbers around the world.
Nimbuzz now provides a host of new features unique to BlackBerry 10, making it easier to discover other Nimbuzz users and contacts.
Topic-specific chatrooms enable users to connect with people sharing similar interests, while file sharing between Nimbuzz provides a cheaper alternative to data plans.
Currently, BlackBerry serves almost 80 million users in 90 countries worldwide. Forrester predicts that by June, 200 carriers will adopt the new BlackBerry handsets worldwide. – TradeArabia News Service
