BBM Channels leaving Beta Zone behind today at 3PM EST
At 3pm EST on Tuesday, the world is going to be a little different, although you might not feel like anything has changed. That is when BBM Channels will leave the world of Beta Zone behind and will move over to BlackBerry App World. BBM Channels allows those with BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry OS 5.0+ devices to join a community of people that share your interests, or one that is about a specific brand that you like. Those creating a channel will be able to have an unlimited number of followers.

BlackBerry has a few rules for those who will be posting to a community. First, of course, is that spam is not allowed. Insults and threats are also not allowed. Also prohibited are sexual and violent comments, and gosh darn it, cussin' is also off-limits.

While BBM Channels is rolling out today to BlackBerry App World only, the good news is that the Canadian OEM will eventually offer this to its new found iOS and Android sportin' friends within months.
