BBM Beta Gets Stickers, Because That's What Was Missing

BlackBerry has updated BBM beta, adding stickers, out of all the other useful features in the world which could have been added, to the app. BBM Shop is where you can buy stickers from (you read it right, "buy"). For now, 20-25 of them have been made available. Unfortunately, not everybody can participate in this beta trial run, which began yesterday.

Are stickers what BlackBerry Messenger needs to trump competition? We don't think so. But then again, all companies want to earn money, and we suspect a similar move to be made by WhatsApp in the near future, if Facebook hopes to earn back the $19 billion that it just splurged on acquiring the instant messaging app.
