BBM video chat confirmed in BlackBerry 10

Video chat has been something that BlackBerry users have been missing out on for a while, and there was a lot of speculation that the feature would make its debut in BlackBerry 10 due to a leaked screenshot. This notion has been confirmed today by CEO Thorsten Heins at RIM’s annual shareholder’s conference. Heins also confirmed that BBM would stay exclusive to BlackBerry.

RIM has been quite bold in its actions lately to build up anticipation for BlackBerry 10 and to get rid of any speculation that the company was going down. They held a conference nearly a week ago to reassure everyone that they fine financially and they were investing everything into BlackBerry 10, which is why they decided to postpone its release. Although BlackBerry 10 devices won’t hit the market until 2013, fans have a little bit more of a reason to wait knowing that they won’t get BBM anywhere else and they can finally video chat on their device. Are you excited to video chat on BBM? Would this feature help convince you to wait for a BlackBerry 10 device? Let us know in the comments section below
