How could there possibly be a bbm app for andriod and others? Don't you have to get your bbm ID directly from them? If so, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't go giving them out to people who didn't own Blackberrys. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I've never owned one, so I'm just going by what I've heard and read. The only apps I've seen that allow BB's and others to chat with each other use a completely different network that has its own ids.

1s and 0s are just 1s and 0s. I agree someone has to assign an ID and BBs usually store that on the phone. Maybe you have to make a BB account? But I've changed phones and my BB ID changed. *shrugs* I know it's possible. Just not sure how.

I did some research and it turns out that was a rumor. Rim came out with a statement that it will not be happening. Basically rim has its own servers that handle bbm, so in order for andriod or iOS users to use it rim would need to give them access to their servers, and that's not going to happen.
