BlackBerry Motion advert video. Long battery life, water resistance and more

It is nice to sometimes see a no-nonsense, informative advertisement. I would much rather see render of the phone from every angle and have its features listed out to me than watch some Koreans jump around merrily and take camera snaps of themselves (cough, Samsung, cough). Hence why I approve of this advert of BlackBerry Motion. In case you cannot watch the video right now, I will list the phone’s revealed specifications:– aluminium frame, scratch-resistant display,– Privacy Shade and Locker Mode security suite,– IP67 water and dust certificate,– Android 7.0 ...

BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition now available in Blueshop and CDW Canada

By now we all know and (many of us) love BB’s KEYone and its Black Edition. What is not to like about the same good smartphone with physical keyboard but with 4GB instead of 3 and 64GB storage instead of 32? If you live in Canada and want to buy yourself that phone, you can now get it from two new carriers: CDW Canada for $891.99 CAD and Blueshop for $799.99. And no, Americans, sorry but Black Edition still is not coming to the US. You can get a BlackBerry KEYone Space Edition from AT&T, and while it is still a great phone, it has the specs of a normal KEYone. ...

BlackBerry Motion leaked. Waterproof, touchscreen and more

The above picture has been posted on Twitter by Evan Blass himself, god bless the man. Phone has been previously rumoured to be called Krypton, but it now has been changed to Motion. Might have something to do with all the exploding, health-risking phones that appear on the market lately. What do we know about BB Motion? Not much. It will sport a common touchscreen interface instead of KeyONE’s physical keyboard. Rumoured specification is:– 1920 x 1080p display,– Snapdragon 625 or 626 CPU,– 4GB RAM,– home button with embedded fingerprint scanner,– ...

BlackBerry KeyONE Black Edition comes to Canada by the end of September

Black Edition is an upgraded version of BlackBerry’s KeyONE. KeyONE is already famous for one thing – having balls large enough to have, in an era of all-touch displays, a physical keyboard. Black Edition is pretty much the same thing that KeyONE was, only with more memory (4GB RAM instead of 3GB and 128GB storage instead of 64GB). Phone will be available ofr $799 CAD, which translates into $648 USD. Oh, speaking of US of A, sorry, but you Americans will not get Black Edition in your country; Canadian release is as close to the United States as it gets. ...

BlackBerry Krypton receives FCC certification

BB Krypton has already received Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and now FCC certifications, which means that the device probably is good to go. Here is what we know about the phone:– 4000mAh battery, which is considerable,– 1080 x 1920 screen resolution,– Snapdragon 625 CPU,– 4GB RAM,– possibly an IP 67 water-and-dust-proof certificate.I do not understand why but, according to an older Wi-Fi Alliance certification, there will be four different models of the phone: BBD100-1. BBD100-2, -3 and -6. What does this mean is anyone’s guess, since I doubt we will be seeing four ...

BlackBerry Priv will not be getting its OS upgraded to Nougat

Sorry, Priv owners; as it turns out, update to Marshmallow was the last OS update this phone will ever receive. This news was officially confirmed by Alex Thurber, General Manager of BlackBerry Mobility Solutions. The reason stated is difficulty in getting together all partners neccessary for the effort. Mr. Thurber has also stated that the popular KEYone will indeed be getting its OS updated to Oreo, although we still do not know exacly when this will happen. My guess is that we will have to wait until 2018. ...

Sorry, USA, you won’t get BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition after all

Few days ago I wrote about how BlackBerry considers releasing KEYone Black Edition on the European market. Check this post out if you don’t know about Black Edition at all and want to check out the phone’s specs and whatnot. Or maybe do not bother, at least if you are from the US of A. According to an unknown source (so this is not 100% confirmed), BlackBerry will not release Black Edition in the land of freedom and justice and apple pie. Countries where Black Edition WILL be released are Germany, France, Canada, Japan, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and United ...
