The rumours, they swirl.

Following the announcement that BlackBerry’s popular messaging-via-the-Internet, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), would be available to Android and Apple users this summer via a free download, gsmarena is reporting that BlackBerry is looking to ship some Android smartphones with BBM pre-installed.

BlackBerry chief operating officer Kristian Tear was reported as saying there was interest from other handset makers in the notion, but did not specify which handset makers exactly.

BBM sees more than 60 million monthly active users, with more than 51 million daily active users, and 10 billion messages each day.

What Mobile is waiting on comment from BlackBerry.
