Do you remember this phone -> Nokia E61 Smartphone 75 MB - shared - Not specified - WCDMA (UMTS) / GSM - Silver
This is a Nokia that had a BlackBerry Application on it. It allowed there to be BlackBerry push email on it. I have also looked at other links like the Nokia E90 that has BlackBerry Connect 4.0 on it.
I do not know if that means BlackBerry Messenger, but I think it is a start of something.
I also agree about gtalk. I am trying to get all my friends (that I jumped ship on) to use gtalk. I have seen so far that ALL BlackBerry phones come with gtalk.
Maybe we'll have something close to that in the future...
I mean, we are in 2010, where are all the flying cars that were supposed to be here? Uh, We can't get Blackberry messenger for our DROID (or non-BlackBerry phone), I think it will be a while for the flying cars...LOL!!!

As much as I still like my 8310 (I was always on BES so BIS outages didn't matter) I can't see a BB Connect app for Android. The developer would have to work with RIM and there would definitely be licensing fees involved. Considering that Android devices don't have a PIN it's unlikely to work well.
I don't see the point in pining for BBM when there are more "standard" IM apps out there. Even on my BB I'd use BBM as well as Beejive.

why would you want an android only messenger?
i didn't even use bbm when I was on my storm b/c not all my contacts had blackberries. same thing now with the droid. why limit the number of people you can interact with?
