really dont see whats wrong whatsapp ui, it looks like any other chatting service…contact works fine for me, it adds the contact that i know and much easier than getting a bb pin…voice and video is nice touch on bbm. not something ill use but nice to have…if everyone i know ends up on bbm ill use it but right now they are on whatsapp..
60million is small compared to the 200+ million whatsapp users…i remember bbm was all the rage about 2 years ago but from what i gather from the people i know is that, people have been ditching bbm in favour of whatsapp because whats app is everywhere and does everything bbm does anyways…its nice that bbm is going to be available for all but imo i do think its quite late. reason i say this is that when i told all the previous bbm users i knew that bbm is coming to ios and android, they were not bothered. they just said no point now i can do everything on whatsapp etc..now am not saying everyone is going to act like that but i feel that bbm is too late to ios and android too make a a huge different…then again i could be wrong and everyone might ditch whatsapp if bbm is truly free where as on whatsapp its free for a year then you have to pay…end of the day people will go where all there friends are, right now everyone i know is on whatsapp.
