News: BlackBerry Priv Comes to India

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).

News: BlackBerry Exec: "Only Android as a Platform"

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.

News: BlackBerry Updates BB 10.3

BlackBerry has already confirmed that there will be no new hardware this year running the BB10 operating system, and unless something changes we may never see hardware running the company's proprietary platform ever again. However, the Canadian manufacturer is not turning its back on BB10 and will continue to maintain and update the platform for existing devices, starting with the next upgrade.

News: BlackBerry Priv Apps Updated through Google Play Store

BlackBerry has issued an update for unlocked and AT&T versions of the Android running Priv flagship smartphone. The update allowed the Canadian company to enhance some of its apps in the Google Play Store, while the new software also squashes some bugs and improves the general performance and stability of the Priv for those who own it.

News: BlackBerry Priv Available in Walmart

We are led to believe that the BlackBerry Priv has been a success since launching last month, although BlackBerry has yet to reveal specific sales figures. The company's Android running flagship handset will also be getting an extra boost through the Christmas period as the Priv is now available in Walmart, the largest retailers in the United States.

News: BBM Update for Android Brings Array of Features

BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) is perhaps the clearest evidence of how BlackBerry has changed in recent years. Once one of the company's core features and one that it kept to its own platform, BBM has since moved to be a cross platform service and has been eclipsed by other messenger services. That said, BBM still has tens of millions of users across iOS and Android and the former of those platforms is seeing its BBM app get an update.

News: Did the BlackBerry Venice get Benchmarked?

BlackBerry and Samsung held several meetings together last year, leading to rumors suggesting Samsung would buyout ailing BlackBerry. However, the Canadian company said it was meeting with Samsung to discuss other, secretive, matters. It is easy to think now that BlackBerry talked to the South Korean market leader about building devices on the Android platform in view of launching the PRIV flagship.

News: BlackBerry Priv could come to T-Mobile

One of the major advantages of BlackBerry's Priv flagship running Android is that major carriers will be more willing to accept the handset. At the moment the Priv is available on AT&T and through BlackBerry itself, but now T-Mobile has said that it is seeking to also sell BlackBerry's new QWERTY packing smartphone.

News: BlackBerry Vienna, the Next Android Smartphone

While the whacky and unique square design of the BlackBerry Passport is unlikely to ever make it to the Android platform, the company has been buoyed by the early success of the Priv and is now working on another handset for Google's OS.

News: BlackBerry Priv Sold Out on Amazon

For many, the Priv is the last throw of the hardware dice for BlackBerry; if it is not a success it is thought that the company will pull out of the hardware market. The Canadian giant has denied that repeatedly, but nevertheless the Android backed Priv seems to be a handset that will define whether BlackBerry has a future in hardware. With that in mind we imagine CEO John Chen and co will be delighted that the handset has already sold out on Amazon.
