Though Blackberry Messenger is currently exclusive to Blackberry phones, the service may be making its way to phones running Android and iOS.

Boy Genius Report reports that Research in Motion is set to bring its Blackberry Messenger service to competing phones via an application.

Very few details concerning the move have been released. BGR reports that RIM may make the software available for free for non-Blackberry phones, though the company is also considering other pricing options.

Blackberry Messenger, a significant feature for BlackBerry phones, allows users to quickly share messages with each other. The software also allows users to send pictures, locations, and voice notes, though it is likely that that extra functionality would be stripped from the Android and iOS versions.

Current estimates for the move point to later this year for the Android version. Less is known about its iOS counterpart, which will appear later.
