Blackberry Confirms The Rumor That It Is Working On An Android Phone. by Tallesty1(m): 7:53am On Sep 26, 2015
BlackBerry’s CEO John Chen confirmed yesterday that the rumors of its first Android device, are indeed accurate.

The report came as a part of the company’s quarterly earnings announcement released Friday, BlackBerry confirmed it would roll out an Android phone in late 2015 and it’s name will be blackberry priv.

“Today, I am confirming our plans to launch Priv, an Android device named after BlackBerry’s heritage and core mission of protecting our customers’ privacy,” BlackBerry CEO John Chen said in a written statement. “Priv combines the best of BlackBerry security and productivity with the expansive mobile application ecosystem available on the Android platform.”

He did not provide any significant details such as specs, pricing, or availability but BlackBerry did say that the phone will be called Priv, ie privacy.

You can recall the CEO once said that if he can secure Android Os then he will consider building one.

Also, BlackBerry’s CEO reaffirmed its commitment to BlackBerry 10 on Friday. The company says it will continue to “develop and enhance the BlackBerry 10 operating system.” The next update for BB10 will be version 10.3.3 rolling out in March.

The official specs of the BlackBerry priv will be revealed in few weeks and there’s a rumor that BlackBerry priv will launch on November.

That's business nah, sometimes you lose and other times you win.

But I think this priv will give them a significant recovery.

Unless perhaps they wanna continue having woeful sales!
Yels!!


Same thing with Nokia, if they don't keep the price of their next android device low then they ain't going nowhere.

The Yoruba adage that says, it's till you see another person's father's farm, you would keep assuming your father's farm is the largest in the world.

Two weeks ago, I was still swearing allegiance to my blackberry Q10 till I lost it and a client got me HTC M9....


Cheeeeeeesos!!!! Everyday I'm discovering something new on the phone and I can't stop regretting all those wasted years on bb.

If them like, they should run it on human DNA OS, as for me o... Blackberry is dead and gone in my life!

Apart from me still getting used to the on-screen keyboard, this device is definitely gonna be one of the highlights of my 2015!

That would be nice, but the main question here is whether the device will be cost effective.
