Tech blog BGR is reporting that RIM plans on taking its BlackBerry Messenger app to Android and iOS devices like the iPad and iPhone.

Details are still sketchy surrounding the timing and pricing. RIM is still debating whether to make the app free, charge a one-time fee, or have a recurring fee for access to its BBM serivce.

If the move goes through, the BBM service would then be in direct competition with other messaging apps like GChat, Kik, and WhatsApp. These applications are free, available on most mobile devices, and can be used across platforms.
