LG G Pro Lite to be the first Android device to come with BBM preinstalled


lg g pro lite

After news that BBM would soon come pre-installed on a variety of Android devices, today we finally know who was first in line. Announced in a press release this afternoon, BlackBerry has revealed that they’ll be teaming up with LG to include BBM preloaded on some of their devices, starting with the LG G Pro Lite.

From the wording in the press release, it appears that the prebundling of BBM for the G Pro Lite is only delegated to select markets, those like Africa, the Middle East, and Indonesia. With LG all aboard the BlackBerry train, just don’t be surprised if you find BBM in your next LG device.

BlackBerry also mentioned the app will remain free on the Google Play Store, where they plan to release future updates to include support for BBM Channels, BBM Voice Calling, and BBM Video calling.
