BlackBerry Messenger is arriving iOS and Android later this summer, but we’re getting an early look at how the latter app will handle when it goes public. has posted a video (below) of the newly cross-platform messaging app in use, showing off its BlackBerry 10-like interface on an HTC First. One nice surprise is the ability to transfer contact data over NFC using Android Beam. With a landing page for the new Android and iOS clients now up on BlackBerry’s site, user guides available online, and the end of summer right around the corner, we’re counting down the days until the official launch.
