BBM for Windows Phone is now available to the general public. BlackBerry has just shared news that an update to BBM should be out shortly. Today's update will reflect the improvements the team has made with BBM for Windows Phone during the beta period.

Right now you'll still see BBM version in the Windows Phone Store, but a blog post from BlackBerry informs us that version 1.01 should be out sometime today.

This update will drop the beta status and include changes made to the app during the last phase of the beta. You'll notice mostly bug fixes and performance improvements if you've been using BBM in beta. BlackBerry also says that app load times should be faster.

Update: You should now be seeing BBM version in the Windows Phone Store with no beta label. Enjoy!

Let us know if you see the new version of BBM for Windows Phone yet and what you think of the app.
