BBM Video may be introduced with BlackBerry 10

Now here's a little piece of news that should make all BlackBerry loyalists pretty happy. Evidence suggests that with BlackBerry 10, RIM will introduce a new feature for its popular BBM service, namely video conversations.

BBM Video, as the feature will likely be named, has not been mentioned by any of the company's officials, but its existence has been seemingly confirmed by the latest BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha update. In particular, there's a folder called "bbm_video", and inside it is stored an audio file named "video_chat.m4a". The file is the same ringtone used by the video chat app found on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.

This comes only a couple of weeks after voice conversations were added to the BBM feature set with the app's latest beta update. With BBM Voice, users can call their BBM contacts for free.

Of course, you should keep in mind that the existence of BBM Video has not been confirmed by an official source. More details, however, will surely surface pretty soon. The BlackBerry 10 platform is to be introduced on January 30, along with the first two smartphones that will run it.
