Also ties up with Android OEMs in India for selling phones preloaded with BBM.

And now, the service has unveiled its Twitter-like BBM Channel. The social networking platform will let users create a BBM profile for others to follow, and communicate.

In related news, BlackBerry has also tied up with local handset manufactures such as Micromax, Spice, Celkon, and Zen to sell smartphones preloaded with the BBM app. For now, starting with the Micromax Canvas Turbo, the entire Canvas range will come preloaded with the social networking app.
