WhatsApp just gave BlackBerry and Windows Phone an ultimatum

WhatsApp has called time on BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone 8.0, confirming that it will cease supporting the smartphone platforms at the end of the year as it focuses its development attentions elsewhere.

BlackBerry PRIV reaches end of life, no more monthly updates

Time flies, as they say, whether you’re having fun or not. It’s almost incredible, and by that, we mean “unbelievable”, that BlackBerry’s first fully Android smartphone has already passed its second birthday. And yet that is exactly the case with the somewhat odd BlackBerry Priv and its sliding keyboard. Sadly, that second birthday is usually a death sentence for smartphones and, as such, the Priv will no longer receive monthly security updates moving forward.

Grab this BlackBerry KEYone Best Buy discount while it’s hot

Android users might have been distracted by the shiny new Google Pixel 2 or even the “intelligent” Huawei Mate 10, but let’s not forget some phones that, while just a wee bit older, might offer just as much or even more. One such model is the BlackBerry KEYone, so far the last QWERTY Android phone in the market. While not exactly the strongest link in this year’s chain, it offers a few special features that might make it worth its price. Especially now that, for 24 hours only, the phone will be available $50 cheaper on Best Buy.

BlackBerry Motion breaks cover, all screen, no keyboard

BlackBerry Motion breaks cover, all screen, no keyboard

The somewhat odd BlackBerry KEYone might have been the last of a dying breed. Although not exactly the first made by TCL, it is the first BB phone to be openly advertised as such. It is also the last BB phone, so far, to sport BlackBerry's iconic QWERTY keyboard. That image may have just been reinforced by the fact that the new BlackBerry Motion, previously codenamed "Krypton", is more your traditional Android smartphone, all screen and no special tricks up its sleeves.

BlackBerry's resurgence at the hands of TCL continues, and though the KEYone has given physical keyboard fans something to tap at, there's also a full-touch device in the works.

Still, that's changed with a sneaky pre-announcement photo that has emerged this week.

BlackBerry Priv won’t get Android Oreo, DTEKs also unlikely

BlackBerry is one of those regarded to be quite fast at pushing out updates to its devices but there are still limits to what it is able to accomplish. Unfortunately for owners of its more or less recent Android phones, they will be running into those limits hard. In an interview with UTB Blogs, Alex Thurber, BlackBerry Mobile Solutions General Manager delivers some bad news. The BlackBerry Priv won’t be getting Android 8.0 Oreo, and the DTEK59 and DTEK60 might be on a similar boat.

BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition launches globally: Hands-on

It seems that India was only given a head start, probably thanks to BlackBerry’s partnership with Optiemus there. It’s not much of a lead time, though, because just one month later, BlackBerry and TCL are announcing that the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition will indeed be heading out in other markets, practically across the globe. Now BlackBerry fans in Europe, Middle East, and soon Asia and Latin America will be able be able to get their hands on a KEYone with no hint of silver. Curiously, no mention of the US at all.
