Blackberry has announced a deal with 12 small OEMs building Android devices to bundle BMM with their base device.

These are international manufacturers you have probably never heard of in Canada, the US or Europe but they are still recognized brands in india, Indonesia, Africa and the Middle East.

Blackberry still has to figure out a way to monetize BBM but their primary concern seems to be finding ways to aggressively increase their user numbers (even if these are BBM users on non Blackberry devices).
