BlackBerry Messenger to hit Android and iOS June 27th (or not)

BlackBerry Messenger to hit Android and iOS June 27th (or not)
We've known for a bit now that BlackBerry Messenger is going cross-platform and will release and app for Android and iOS, but so far, we've only known that it would be coming "this summer". Now, word out of T-Mobile UK is giving the exact release date when you can expect to see BBM: June 27th.

The release will be available on smartphones only, and you'll need to be running Android 4.0 or higher, or iOS 6 or higher. 

One note though, it looks like T-Mobile UK wasn't supposed to give out the info that it did, because the original tweet has been deleted. The tweet simply said, "Great news - BlackBerry Messenger will be available to download on iOS and Android from June 27th! :)" So, we'll have to wait for confirmation on this. 

*Update* BlackBerry has denied the leak. A spokesman for the company has released this statement:
