BlackBerry releasing BBM “Stickers” Feature Soon

BlackBerry is not sitting on their laurels with BBM, which is great to see. They have  just announced ─ via their BlackBerry Blog ─ that Stickers are coming shortly to BBM and are currently in limited beta. This seems to be BlackBerry’s first attempt to allows users to purchase sticker packs via BBM in collections of 20-25 that relate to a theme or character. These will be like Bubble Bot, CosCat and Gilbert’s Tales, and more to come. There are also characters from TV and movies along with a free BBM sticker pack with larger emoticons.

What is the difference is between emoticons and stickers?
Stickers are “bolder more beautiful images that you can add right in the chats.” In other words think of them as very expressive emoticons that you can purchase.

I think BlackBerry may be on to something with this one. They just need to keep pushing forward!
