New Delhi: BlackBerry is reportedly looking to roll out its popular messaging service, BBM, on Android phones running Gingerbread OS.

BBM on Gingerbread Android phone would allow the smartphone maker to compete in emerging markets. A TechCrunch and Engadget study points that despite being generations old, Android 2.1.x Gingerbread still powers 21 percent of Android phones, most of which are located in emerging markets.

The smartphone manufacturer recently upgraded its BlackBerry 10 OS with a number of enhancements, including a new picture passcode feature, new lock screen, and FM radio in Q5, Q10 and Z30 handsets.
