BlackBerry Messenger is coming to iOS and Android pretty soon, and this video has the first look of how good ol' BBM will look like.

Essentially, BBM will now be another messaging service in the spirit of WhatsApp, which will let BlackBerry 10, iOS and Android users to text each other for free. The video, from, shows the app running on an HTC First with a BlackBerry 10-styled interface. BBM will allow users to send messages of up to 2,000 characters, video chat, and make voice calls over Wi-Fi. One new feature is that users will be able to transfer contact data over NFC using Android Beam. 

What text messaging services do you use now? Will you give BBM a try, again?
