BlackBerry's current flagship, the Android running Priv, is now making its debut in India, with BlackBerry in New Delhi to launch the device in the country. The handset will not come cheaply on the Sub-continent though, costing a massive Rs. 62,900 ($927).

Samsung Galaxy S6 Flagships Receiving Android 6.0 Marshmallow Now
By Pablo Jimenez on Monday February 01, 2016

Samsung has finally gotten around to rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow for its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. It's just as well really as the current flagships are about to be replaced by the Galaxy S7 range at the end of February at MWC. So, at least many Galaxy S6 owners will have Marshmallow by then.

Samsung Slips Out of Top Five Brands in China
By Josh Dasey on Monday February 01, 2016

Samsung's market lead has declined in recent years, the company sells fewer devices and has seen profits for its smartphone division take a hit as a result. Of course, Sammy still thrives as the number one smartphone brand in the world, but the company is not tasting the sheer dominance it once did. It seems that one market particularly has caused Samsung's problems, China.

Xiaomi Could Launch Windows 10 Mi 5 Flagship Variant
By Josh Dasey on Monday February 01, 2016

We have been waiting so very long for Xiaomi to launch its Mi 5 flagship, over 18 months in fact and still we have the now ancient Mi 4 and nothing new. The wait is almost over of course, with Xiaomi tipped to unveil the device at MWC during the last week of this month, and now it seems the Mi 5 may get a Windows sibling.

IDC Says Smartphone Sales Rose to Leading
By admin on Sunday January 31, 2016

The IDC has said smartphone sales continued to increase to record levels through 2015, showing the market appears to be unwilling to slow down. The smartphone market is now the most competitive it has ever been, saturated? We don't think so as this competition means some of the giant names are not having things all their own way these days ... just ask Samsung now, and ask Apple in a few months.

LG G3 Widget Security Flaw Patched
By Micah Bartos on Sunday January 31, 2016

We have never been big fans of the LG Smart Notice, a widget that has been included on most of the company's devices over the last few years. The widget offers updates and notifications regarding numerous services and on board functions, but it has never really worked as well as LG would want it to. If you own an LG G3, the Smart Notice is much more problematic than not working well, however.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Launching Feb. 21
By Micah Bartos on Sunday January 31, 2016

Aside from official confirmation, most details regarding the Samsung Galaxy S7 are known, from design to specs. One of the most consistent rumors has been the one that the flagship will launch at MWC 2016 in Barcelona at the end of the month. That rumor now seems to have been confirmed by tipster Evan Blass, who has posted an image of the upcoming invite for the launch event.

Apple, Investors, Sales, and Records Breaking
By Luke Jones on Sunday January 31, 2016

Apple is in the position of celebrating the huge news that it just recorded the most profitable quarter in history ... not in the history of the company, or the history of mobile companies, but just plain old business history. Apple has achieved what no one else has (leave your Fannie Mae ramblings elsewhere). However, the celebrations must be muted because looking to the future there is an increasing realization that the only way is down.

Official Renders of Samsung Galaxy S7
By Luke Jones on Sunday January 31, 2016

Last year's Galaxy S6 was Samsung overhauling its flagship range. It was a ground up build that aimed to change the company's direction, something it succeeded in doing with its premium metal and glass construction. With that in mind, it was unlikely that Sammy would embark on a radical design shift again for the follow up Galaxy S7, and so it proves as these reportedly official renders prove.
