Samsung is looking to go all the way in the world of cross-platform messaging as it rolls out its ChatOn service to BlackBerry devices. The application which was launched in August 2011 is pre-loaded onto Samsung’s Android and Bada devices and if you don’t have it you can just hit it up at Google Play or Apple’s App Store. A quick glance at the ChatOn page reveals that it has been downloaded over 500,000 times just on Android devices, but when you’re in the same category with cross platform messaging Big Daddy, Whatsapp which has clocked over 10 million Android downloads alone, ChatOn still has some distance to go.
With ChatOn releasing the application for Blackberry, the only OS that is missing from the mix is Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS and only after that can it achieve the real status of cross-platform messaging service. If Samsung wants ChatOn to remain relevant among the big hitters like Whatsapp, iMessage or BBM, it certainly has its work cut out.
