New Delhi: While BBM 7.0 with BBM Voice is not available in India currently, some indicators show it should be available in India very soon-within the next few weeks, what with the impending launch of BlackBerry-maker Research in Motion's (RIM) do-or-die OS BlackBerry 10 on January 30 and the expected operationalisation of the New Telecom Policy 2012 that liberalises India's telecom policy regime.
RIM's latest goof-up in India had been BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) 7.0 with Voice. In mid-November, Indian news media carried global releases giving news about the beta release of BBM 7 that featured BBM Voice, which allowed free calling over Wi-Fi to other BBM users who also have BBM 7 installed and are connected to Wi-Fi. RIM goofed up by not clarifying that the Beta wasn't available in India, thanks to regulatory concerns, and made things worse by inviting Indian BlackBerry users over e-mail to try BBM 7.0 Beta when it wasn't even available here.
While BBM 7 has gone from Beta to final release in a period of less than a month, with the final version released in early December, RIM has refused to comment on when BBM 7.0 with voice would be released in India.
