BBM is finally out, so far so good.

Over 10 million downloads in less than a day, that’s pretty good considering naysayers said no one wanted it anymore, I have roughly 20 contacts already, more than any other stupid chat app on my phone.

“It’s been 24 hours since we resumed the launch of BBM for Android and iPhone,” Andrew Bocking, BlackBerry’s BBM chief, said in a blog post today. “And what a day it’s been.”

“BBM is looking great on iPhone, Android and BlackBerry, and the team here is very excited about the success of this launch,” he added.

Taking the number 1 slot on iPhone free apps is no small feat, BBM did it in less than 24 hours, Android however is showing 1 million to 5 million installs, 121,333 G+1’s and over 100,000 reviews with 70% of them being a 5 star rating… I’d say BBM is here to stay.

What do you think?
