It would appear that the public beta version of BBM is a different one than what was released for the closed beta testers earlier in the month. In any case, this version is apparently the one that BlackBerry is letting any Window Phone users try out.
Here's a quick description for version 126.96.36.199:
- Chat with friends on Windows Phone, iPhone, Android and BlackBerry:
- Know when messages have been delivered (D's) and read (R's)
- Quickly share photos, voice notes, BBM contacts and your location
- See when contacts are responding to your message
- Emoticons for every mood and emotion let you express yourself
The description adds, "We're already working hard on V2 where we'll introduce additional features to BBM for Windows Phone." Will you be trying out this first public beta of BBM? Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
