BBM in Blackberry Link

I would like to be able to use BBM through Blackberry Link on my desktop.  Ideally, I'd like more than just the BBM through Link but let's start there.  In fact, this would ideally work like Blackberry Bridge works on the playbook with OS7 etc.  The Link should work like a window to my entire phones funcitonality but with the benefit of my keyboard and mouse when I'm at my desk...  Any plans for that?

Re: BBM in Blackberry Link

Great suggestion, but for now, Desktop BBM has not been announced by BlackBerry.

Re: BBM in Blackberry Link

thanks.  I haven't been looking but maybe many people are looking for this type of thing.  It seems like Blackberry already have it 90% complete (for what little I know of software development...ha).

Re: BBM in Blackberry Link

90%, what makes you think that?

Re: BBM in Blackberry Link

90% was a bit off the cuff but I come to that because the Blackberry Bridge worked so well in this fashion between my OS7 device and my Playbook combined with my impression that Blackberry Link looks and feels like it could make the  leap to being a full featured PC 'app' for my phone.

Re: BBM in Blackberry Link

I am not convinced that BBM is any where near being added to Link or any PC/Mac desktop application.

 

I know users have requested it, but I don't get the warm fuzzies that it's close. Could be.

Re: BBM in Blackberry Link

Ah, ok.  I'm not at all close to the situation so you must know better than I do.  It's probably just my own wishful thinking then.  Thanks for your comment.

Re: BBM in Blackberry Link

I'm not that close either, but two weeks ago at the BlackBerry Live conference, the was no discussion or hinting towards that, and users have been asking... just my guess also.
