Lenovo's presence at the Mobile World Conference (MWC) was fairly substantial, with the Chinese company unveiling new smartphones and tablets. In terms of handsets, the Motorola owner raised the curtain on a pair of devices that are aimed at the budget crowd.

By Josh Dasey on Saturday January 30, 2016

We don't need much proof that BlackBerry is starting to throw its lot in with Android, after-all the company released the Priv flagship smartphone rocking Google's mobile platform late last year. It is becoming increasingly likely that the Canadian company will stop making hardware for its own BB10 operating system, and now a BlackBerry exec has pointed once more to the company adopting Android full time.
