BBM, the BlackBerry messenger service that has helped manufacturers RIM perform well in both business and teenage markets, looks likely to arrive on Android phones very soon. But are these images real or fake?

Techradar has posted pictures of the update in action, which it claims have been sent from an anonymous source.

BBM has long been a key USP of the BlackBerry offering but Apple are launching a similar service, called iMessage in iOS 5 very soon. Android phones have a greater market share than BlackBerry devices and, if true, the arrival of an Android version of BBM would lead to a surge in the use of the service.
