They've had the advert on the radio for 2 weeks already. I'm guessing Samsung have some intell about the launch. Pretty funny how listening to Samsung stealing BB's thunder and claiming its a feature of their own...

In fairness they don't claim as their own. They do claim as a Samsung feature. But listen to first before you open your trap

How is this regarding BBM exactly? One of the comments in the picture mentions "bbm" with Samsung Ghana replying to it with a clear "no".. Doesn't make sense!
