Nimbuzz, the popular mobile communications platform, has made its application available for download on the new BlackBerry 10 operating system starting today, thus providing users with new means of staying in touch with their friends and families while on the go.The app has been redesigned to fit the new mobile operating system from BlackBerry, and offers integration with GTalk, Yahoo! and Facebook Messenger, for unlimited chat messaging and content sharing across platforms.
With the new Nimbuzz app for BlackBerry 10, users will receive access to features such as:
- Group and “Peer-to-Peer” messaging – integrated messaging and free chatrooms
- Entertainment through the N-World – an entertainment-focused international marketplace
- Multimedia sharing – a cheaper way to share data
- Social integration–post direct to Twitter and Facebook without leaving the app
The new mobile operating system is expected to reach 20 million users before the end of this year, and all these people will benefit from the capabilities of Nimbuzz, the company notes, adding that PlayBook owners can also enjoy the application.
Nimbuzz was one of the companies to have received access to the BlackBerry 10 SDK before the official launch of the platform, a move that provided it with the possibility to build an app that would fit all new BlackBerry 10 devices.
“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.”
At the moment, Nimbuzz has a community of over 100 million users worldwide, with over 200,000 new registrations being made each day. These people can take advantage of free Nimbuzz-to-Nimbuzz calls, as well as discounted call rates to phone numbers around the world.
The Nimbuzz application for BlackBerry 10 devices is already available for download through the BlackBerry World portal.
