BlackBerry Porsche crossover continues with Z10-inspired reboot

There's nothing like a good Porsche BlackBerry phone to make you realize that there's a niche for essentially any sort of smartphone you can think of, just so long as it's got a brand attached to it. Here we're seeing the continuation of the Porsche BlackBerry team-up, coming up from the last edition which rolled out with a full QWERTY keyboard. This device is inspired by the BlackBerry Z10, though its full touchscreen UI is slightly modified beyond that first-generation product.

BlackBerry A10 vs Z10 leaks show sizeable case change

BlackBerry A10 vs Z10 leaks show sizeable case change

The BlackBerry A10 is a rumored device that is said to be working with the BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system and being prepared by the company to do battle with the larger display-toting market that's swallowed much of the smartphone world. What we've seen thus far indicates the A10 to be working with a 5-inch display with 1280 x 720 pixel display resolution, a rather large bump over BlackBerry's current touchscreen hero device in the Z10 with its 4.2-inch panel.

BlackBerry A10 appears in video, 5-inch display and all

What you're about to see would very much appear to be the next-generation BlackBerry smartphone code-named BlackBerry A10 Aristo. This device has been rumored to be the first BlackBerry 10 smartphone to be working with a 5-inch display, aiming to take on the likes of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 in the handheld market while the original BlackBerry Z10's display size lacks punch. This device takes on an appearance much like the Z10, working instead with a white bar of plastic on its bottom instead of both its bottom and its top.

BlackBerry Z10 subsidy increases as sales suffer

The BlackBerry Z10 is the one phone that aims to revive the company and increase its market share, but seeing as how BlackBerry suffered a loss last quarter, they're going to have to pull out the big guns.

BlackBerry 7 device lives on as RIM brand gasps its last breath

Yesterday, we feasted our eyes on a leaked BlackBerry 9720 handset running BlackBerry 7.

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry needs a new smartphone for the mass market, and the BlackBerry Q5 is its attempt to deliver. Cheaper than the Q10, though offering another sturdy QWERTY keyboard for text-addicts, the Q5 pares back the specifications (and, it has to be said, the design) to boost the BlackBerry 10 line-up by 50-percent. Is it third time lucky for the plucky Canadian company, or three strikes and you're out? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Two sides of BlackBerry plunge: we’re fine and no you’re not

While BlackBerry makes its best effort to find its way back to smartphone positivity, this weeks' response to the company's latest earnings have been rather negative. It's not as if the company doesn't understand what's happening, and how it'll be seen by the public - "[BlackBerry is still in] early stages of its transition" remarked CEO Thorsten Heins via G&M just this afternoon - but a clear path into the future from here, the company certainly does not have.

Six BlackBerry phones at a time says Heins, with one more BB7 to come

BlackBerry aims to have no more than six different products on the market at any one time, CEO Thorsten Heins has said, potentially limiting BlackBerry 10's roll-out as it tries to keep enterprise users of the older OS content. Speaking on BlackBerry's financial results call, after announcing an $84m loss in the most recent quarter, Heins described the new platform as being "still in the early stages of transition"; BlackBerry sold 6.8m devices overall in financial year Q1 2014, though did not break that figure down into BlackBerry 7 versus BlackBerry 10 models. The company has at least one more BlackBerry 7 device in the pipeline for this year.
