News: Analysts Says BlackBerry should Ditch BB 10, we Disagree

Analysts are sometimes right, sometimes state the bleeding obvious, and are sometimes plain wrong, and on this occasion we think Scotia Capital analyst Daniel Chan has got it wrong. He said that BlackBerry needs to ditch its BB operating system entirely and get on board with Google's Android on a full time capacity.

News: A Look Back on Stagefright

We get it already, Android has many a security hole and is vulnerable to attacks. Whether you can live with that and appreciate the openness or not depends, and probably dictates whether you use Google's platform or turn to iOS, Windows, or even BlackBerry. Not that we are brushing it under the carpet or anything, security on Android is arguably the platform?s biggest problem moving forward and there are numerous attacks to be worried about.

News: BlackBerry Bolsters Security with $425 million Good Technology Purchase

BlackBerry is finished, the company is sinking, give it a year. These are some of the things we still hear about BlackBerry to this very day. Sure, declining and consistently low smartphone sales point to a hardware company that may one day just stop building products. However, the company is actually behaving well for a rebounding giant, having decent quarters and some poor ones, but generally moving in the right direction.

News: BlackBerry Passport Silver Arrives in U.S.

The silver edition of the BlackBerry Passport is now available in the United States, bringing with it a slight change to the company's current smartphone flagship.

News: BlackBerry Holds Steady Through Fiscal First Quarter

BlackBerry managed to confound analysts during the first quarter and recorded a profit, something that was hardly expected to happen. The company has now announced its second quarter financials, and while they are not as surprising as last period, the numbers should please BlackBerry's CEO John Chen.

News: BlackBerry Venice will run Android and be made with Samsung?

BlackBerry used to be something of a closed shop, but during trying times the company has learned to play with others and has released its services on other platforms. How far is the Canadian brand willing to push this cross platform ethos? Pretty far it seems, at least according to Eldar Murtazin, a Russian blogger.

News: BlackBerry CEO Explains why the Company still makes Smartphones

Since BlackBerry fell into trouble a couple of years ago, it has often been widely mooted that the company would stop making smartphones. Despite sales declining to a standstill, the Canadian giant has kept releasing new handsets. CEO John Chen was brought in to steady the company, something he achieved, and he sat down with Maria Bartiromo for USA Today and explained why BlackBerry is still in the business of making smartphones.

News: Microsoft, Lenovo, and Xiaomi Interested in Buying BlackBerry?
