Black Berry had paused the rollout of the app after an unreleased version of the BBM for Android app leaked online prior to the app's official release on the Play Store, 'which resulted in volumes of data traffic orders of magnitude higher than normal for each active user and impacted the system in abnormal ways'.And BBM is not going to make Black Berry much money.Whereas originally, BBM was an attempt to get people to buy actual Black Berry handsets, it’s going to be much harder to monetize as a third-party app.And Black Berry’s engineering talent is being fired and hired away very fast.Remember–the company is in such a hole it just reported a billion-dollar loss.
