Not everyone is aware of the existence of BBM Money. Actually, the only time you’d ever even use it is if you’re living in Indonesia. However, it seems that the rest of the world will soon be able to experience this service as well. These speculations come from the fact that BBM has expanded to iOS, Android and maybe Windows Phone in the near future.
This is what David Proulx, Senior Director of BBM Business Development said in a recent interview with ReCode:
“Because we are, by nature, private and secure and reliable and regulatory-compliant, we are ideally suited to bring value in mobile money and financial services,” said Proulx. A BBM person-to-person money transfer service has been in trials in Indonesia, but Proulx said to expect BlackBerry to expand to more countries and more services this year. One area of keen interest is international transfers, Proulx said.
It will take time until this will actually happen, but it’s always good to know about what to expect from the BBM team.
