Just like Nokia, the Blackberry seems to be making a comeback. Just like Nokia (Who are now under HMD) BlackBerry is under TCL and they are making phones as quickly as possible.

According to TCL, the company could be coming out with as many as 3 phones this year.

According to reports, the company is working on an all-touchscreen version, a spiritual successor to the DTEK 50 and DTEK 60 phones, which TCL also built for BlackBerry, according to a source familiar with the rollout plans. TCL will likely get rid of the DTEK branding.

READ: DETAILS OF THE BLACKBERRY MERCURY FINALLY RELEASED
From the looks of things it seems TCL is actually quite serious with Blackberry and truly want to bring them back to their former glory. 

Their first try for the new year, the KeyOne, was revealed at a press conference on Saturday ahead of Mobile World Congress trade show. 


It's a new world for TCL, best known for making budget televisions, as well as phones through its Alcatel line.


It is hoped that TCL will be able to do something amazing with Blackberry this year, but that remains to be seen, so all we can do is wait with bated breath.




There have been rumblings, links, reports, rumors and all sorts surrounding the Blackberry Mercury, but it seems that will all soon be at an end.

It has been announced that we will be getting the full lowdown of the upcoming BlackBerry Mercury at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this year.


READ: CHECK OUT THE TEASER FOR THE NEW BLACKBERRY MERCURY


Many have been curious to see what Blackberry would whip up with their latest play on the smartphone market and many would hope they can bring something good to the tabel.

The company took Twitter to announce the launch event, which is set to take place on February 25 at 7:00 p.m. local time. 





The Mercury will be the first foray by TCL after the company took over the struggling Blackberry and will now make mobile phones with the Blackberry name. 

Not much is known about the system, but the little we do know is that it'll come with Android 7.0 Nougat and a USB Type-C port. We also know that it has a rather hefty rubber and metal body. 

That's about it unfortunately. Blackberry keeping their cards to their chest is intriguing though and it is hoped that it doesn't turn out to be just for nothing.
I guess two weeks isn't too long to wait, we'll wait and see.





With the CES 2017 fast approaching, news, rumours, soundbites and so on have been flooding in about new tech and so on. One of the most exciting has been the BlackBerry 'Mercury' produced by TCL communication.


The company now has branding rights to BlackBerry and while BlackBerry themselves won't be making any more phones, TCL will be and they have through Steve Cistulli (President and General Manager of TCL) dropped a teaser for the Mercury.

The phone is expected to debut at CES 2017 and while little is known about the phone, it is hoped and believed that it will go some way in restarting the popularity of the BlackBerry phones.

What we do know is that we would have a return of the QWERTY keyboard which has always been one of the most attractive features of the Blackberry. 

So till CES 2017 comes, feast your eyes on this teaser video.




BlackBerry had announced earlier that they were quitting the business of making phones and had sold their brand choosing instead to focus on other things such as apps and software.
TCL is the company responsible for making Blackberry phones now and they have announced that they will unveil an “evolutionary first” in the mobile industry at the upcoming CES in January. 
There's almost nothing known about the new phone, but it is rumoured to be codenamed ‘Mercury’. 
The rumours also claim that it could come with a physical Qwerty keyboard along with a touchscreen. This handset was also said to be the last mobile phone from BlackBerry itself before the company completely goes out of the hardware business.
As for the specs of the phone, rumour has it that it will come with a 4.5-inch display with a 3:2 ratio, a 2GHz Qualcomm processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. In the camera department, expect an 18MP shooter at the back and an 18MP camera on the front. BB OS is long gone so it should run on Android, however there is no confirmation if it will be the latest Nougat update.
That's all we have on the phone at the moment, we'll keep you abreast if more is uncovered. If not, we'll have to wait till CES comes in early 2017.



Blackberry has made another attempt at relevance signing over their global rights to TCL. This means that TCL will be able to use Blackberry's branding on phones by them. 
This comes hot on the heels of Blackberry's announcement that they would no longer be making devices of their own but will concentrate instead on services and software.
Under the terms of the agreement, TCL will “design, manufacture, sell, and provide customer support for BlackBerry-branded mobile devices,” while BlackBerry will chip in with the software and services. 
While the deal says that it's global, it really isn't as the deal will not be applicable in Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India, or Indonesia. This, according to Bllomeberg, is because Blackberry already has a licensing agreement in place in Indonesia, and is currently working on another deal with an Indian company.
The the last two BlackBerry phones that went on sale — the Android-powered DTEK50 and DTEK60 — were made by TCL using parts previously found in the Alcatel Idol 4. 
So basically, Blackberry won't be making any phones, so if you're buying a Blackberry, just know it's not being made by the Canadian company.
This continues the sad trend of Blackberry's decline. It's almost unbelievable to remember that just under a decade ago they held 20 percent of the global smartphone market, now? they only hold 0.1 percent. 


This is the end,hold your breath and count to ten.BlackBerry just quit the game of making Smartphones.The Canadian firm announced the news in its quarterly update, CEO John chen said in his speech,
The company plans to end all internal hardware development and will outsource that function to partners.BB Merah Putih, which is led by PT Tiphone Mobile Indonesia, that country’s largest wireless carrier, will pay licensing fees and royalties to BlackBerry.
Mr. Chen also added that the worldwide operation of BBM, the company’s once popular instant message service, was sold to another group in Indonesia.He also said that other companies would provide chips and other hardware to meet those customers’ needs.

According to New York Times,
The effect of the shutdown on BlackBerry’s financial results is unclear but it will most likely lead to a much smaller company. The company said on Wednesday that phones accounted for 30 percent of its revenue during its second quarter. Sales of about 400,000 phones generated revenue of $105 million and a loss of $8 million.


By updating the Blackberry Messenger app on google play store,Android and IOS users now have the benefit to enjoy free video calling feature..



This update is free,all you have to do is visit the Google play store and Update the app but if you have not installed the app,you just have to download the latest version of the app and install.

Blackberry promised to bring more of it's features to android and IOS users after making the Hub+ app available on Google play for download....well i guess this is one being fulfilled.





Officially Blackberry  Hub+ is now available on google play store for download.On Wednesday Blackberry announced that it's Blackberry Hub+ App Which was available only for Blackberry 10 - PRIV and DTECK50 would now be accessible to over 1 billion android smartphone users.isn't that awesome?!

BlackBerry Hub+ is the first pure software offering from the new Mobility Solutions Group.The BlackBerry Hub is a one-stop destination that provides a look at all of your notifications, including those from email, social networks, calendars and more. It’s one of my favorite features on the BlackBerry Priv, since it lets me look at everything in one long list of notifications. Some might find that a little overwhelming, though, so it’s certainly not for everyone. The BlackBerry Hub+ suite also includes BlackBerry Calendar, Password Keeper, Contacts, Tasks, Device Search, Notes and Launcher. Those are all pretty good, but there are also plenty of alternatives on the market.

However, starting today, you can make a dent in your overstuffed social and e-mail accounts by downloading a trial version of Hub+ for free from Google Play. Note: the BlackBerry Hub+ applications are available only for devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow which meet certain performance criteria. After 30 days, users can continue using the apps for free by opting to view occasional ads, or subscribe to the entire suite of apps for just 99 cents a month, which will include additional powerful time-saving features.

Users running on Android 5.0 lollipop and IOS are not left out cause Bleckberry promises to bring the experience to those devices soon,also promising to bring more blackberry experiences too.


Blackberry hasn't competed properly in the smartphone market for a while. They are seen as many as have beens and are seen as being on the brink of extinction. 
Due to this it seemed that Blackberry had placed all their faith in its first Android-powered handset, the BlackBerry Priv, but even it doesn’t appear to have done much to improve its fortunes. 
In a report by CNET where they quoted a “high-level” AT&T executive that the BlackBerry Priv is “really struggling,” and that the rate of return has been quite high. “We’ve seen more returns than we would like” the unnamed executive adds.
The report also reveals that while it was initially believed that an Android-powered handset would entice more users to switch to BlackBerry, most of the customers who did pick one up were BlackBerry loyalists, used to the company’s own operating system, and thus they couldn’t quite make the transition to Android. 
This according to the unnamed executive is the reason for the high rate of return.
BlackBerry has so far said nothing of the report, but report didn't mince words in its analysis of Blackberry's failings. There have even been rumours of the company’s hardware business being shut down for good, with CEO John Chen himself saying that he will shut down the hardware business if it fails to turn a profit soon.
It is hoped that perhaps the Hamburg and Rome might come around and help its fortunes.

Step 1 – Install the PRIV USB Drivers

In order to connect to PRIV so you can access its device memory and media card contents, you need to install the PRIV USB drivers first.
To obtain these drivers, click here & select BlackBerry Android USB and Tether Drivers (Windows) followed by clicking Next and finally Download Software.
When the drivers have finished downloading, double-click on the file to install the drivers on your PC. If prompted, restart your PC after installing the drivers before proceeding.

Step 2 – Connect PRIV to your PC, and select File Transfer mode

When connecting to your PC there are two important things you need to know.
The first is that PRIV must be unlocked if you have a device password set. This is a security precaution that prevents someone from taking your PRIV, connecting it to their PC and having access to your personal data.
The second is that if you are using Android 6.0 or later, aka Marshmallow on PRIV, you must enable File Transfer mode after connecting PRIV to your PC. To do this, on PRIV, after connecting to your PC, swipe down from the top of display using two fingers, tap on the Connecting in charging mode notification followed by tapping File Transfer.


Step 3 – Copy files to and from PRIV using Windows Explorer

After selecting File Transfer mode, access PRIV by opening Windows Explorer and look for your device to be listed along the left as per the screenshot below (it will appear as BlackBerry STV100-X, with X being your specific regional variant of PRIV). Click BlackBerry STV100-X and you will be able to access your PRIV device memory, or your media card if one is inserted into the device.



Warning: Deleting files from your PRIV using Android File Transfer is permanent!

Blackberry have been out of the smartphone game for a while, but they are now braced to make a return in a big way.


There has been talk of two Android handsets arriving this year. Specifications of one of those handsets, codenamed BlackBerry Hamburg, appear to have leaked online.
From the looks of things, the handset visited GFXBench and there it revealed everything that it has inside. 

According to GFXBench, the BlackBerry Hamburg will feature a 5.2 inch Full HD display with a Snapdragon 615 processor under the hood paired with 3GB of RAM.
Also revealed is that the handset will have 16GB of onboard storage, a 12 megapixel rear and 8 megapixel front camera as well as Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow preinstalled straight out of the box.
If you believe previous reports, then you'll know it's going to be an all-touch model, meaning it won’t have that iconic BlackBerry keyboard, that will come with the BlackBerry Rome. 

The Hamburg’s design is said to be similar to the BlackBerry Z30.
BlackBerry's first Android phone, the Priv didn't have much fun on its release, but with the Hamburg and Rome, Blackberry have a way back. We'll see how it goes.



It may just be the smartest move for Smartphones. 

After years of struggling to maintain importance in the growing sector, BlackBerry will be focusing solely on Android in the coming year. The revelation was made Thursday at this year’s staging of the CES in Las Vegas. The news means BlackBerry will not be making any phones operating on the BlackBerry 10 system this year. 

Last year the company announced it would create its first device to use the Android opearting system, the Priv, which will be sold by major carriers in the United States once the 60-day trial period with AT&T ends. Apparently, positive reception of the Priv prompted BlackBerry officials to rethink the company’s approach and, instead of alienating itself by continuing to create phones for its own system, will adopt Android as the go-to system in 2016.

In an interview with CNet, BlackBerry CEO John Chen said sales for the Priv have been good. “I’m taking a cautiously optimistic view,” Chen said. Optimistic enough to roll the phone out to 31 countries across the globe. 

The initial asking price of $699, Chen said, will likely decrease as time goes on. So, BlackBerry 10 isn’t quite dead but it certainly looks as though it’s being moved to the old age home where it will likely quietly fade away.

The official full android blackberry is finally out! BlackBerry revelaed the images of the Priv  two days ago and quite a number of people are loving it already although some hateful comment about the fact that the device is Slide.

The release date and price will be out but apparently not soon. According to blackberry official blog, this device is a privacy-enabled Android smartphone meaning with PRIV’s software enhancements, physical keyboard and oversized screen, all enabled by the slider form factor, we’re bringing privacy, productivity, and, oh yes, some sexy, back. 

Because it’s Powered By Android, PRIV will also deliver the largest choice in apps and the most secure experience possible to the widest audience. PRIV users will enjoy choice, innovation, security, privacy AND productivity. In other words, no compromises. To satisfy the curiosity out there, here are the first official images of PRIV. 

Indeed it's eye-catching and unique but the cons about this device is that the Slide is like a major seat back for it coz really nobody wants to go back to the early years of BlackBerry Torch where you're going to have to battle flex problems, i believe all this must have been worked on by BlakBerry engineers and we look forward to it.

Another thing that might make this more unique is variety in colors, not just just the formal White or Black.

Keep watching this blog and our social channels for more images, videos and details about PRIV’s specs. We’ll also soon post how you can register to receive the latest information about PRIV, including when and how to buy it.

First i must admit, the sets of BlackBerry coming in these days are awesome and what makes it very much interesting is that they aren't just working on redesigning the shapes and feel of their devices instead they work on the software too. That is something BlackBerry fans weren't expecting.

iPhone were the first to do something like this and Nokia took up the step by introducing Android and Microsoft but BlackBerry maintained on this OS 10 generation which has tremendously changed the way BB Users communicate with their phone.

Anyways that's by the side, i am here to introduce you to the all new BlackBerry OS 10 version 3 (10.3) which according to the company it brings together a new look and feel, along with powerful new productivity features designed to boost productivity, collaboration and communication.


  • Android FULLY compatible Operating System with more ways to access apps. It's Android and BlackBerry Apps all in one OS!!! Now that's two for one.


  • The Power to go anywhere, Blackberry Blend brings messaging and content that's on your BlackBerry to your Computer and Tablet with just a click a way.


  • BlackBerry Personal Assistant feature works like charm, you can manage your email, contatcs, calendar and other BB 10 features through Voice and Text command (You can say that's a SiRi beta lol) 


  • BlackBerry Hub fully functional.





Now isn't it tempting to move to BlackBerry now that everything is at your finger tips ?

BlackBerry Q10:

Date of Release:
30 Jan 2013          

Now in my previous post on difference between Blackberry phones, this one seem to amaze me because there isn't anything specially different between both of them excerpt the size. One report claim the reason why BlackBerry thought about this smartphone was due to high demand from customers who finds it hard very hard to SWIPE on BlackBerry Q10 and Z10.


Obviously the price for BlackBerry Q20 won't be as expensive as Q10 when it finally arrives since it's called a "CLASSIC Smartphone" bringing back the track pad should be affordable.

Choose wisely.



WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 18, 2013) - BBM(TM) - the iconic mobile social network - will begin rolling out for Android(TM) and iPhone(R) customers around the world from September 21. Previously exclusive to BlackBerry(R) (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSX:BB) smartphones, BBM will be available as a free download in Google Play(TM) and the App Store(SM). Customers will be able to download BBM by visiting www.BBM.com from their smartphone browser.
BBM gives you a private social network for active, real conversations.
  • It's immediate. BBM is always on so you are always connected. And because messages on BBM are typically delivered and read within seconds, it's the closest thing to a live conversation.
  • You trust it. BBM always tells you that messages are delivered and read. BBM conversations come alive on a private network you can count on.
  • You control it. BBM allows you to choose your contacts and how you share your information. BBM uses a PIN so you don't have to give anyone your phone number or email address.

"BBM is a very engaging messaging service that is simple to use, easy to personalize and has an immediacy that is necessary for mobile communications," said Andrew Bocking, Executive Vice President for BBM at BlackBerry. "With more than a billion Android, iOS, and BlackBerry smartphones in the market, and no dominant mobile messaging platform, this is absolutely the right time to bring BBM to Android and iPhone customers."

BBM for Android and iPhone features:

BBM Chat - Enjoy real, immediate conversations with friends on Android, iPhone and BlackBerry smartphones. Not only does BBM let you know that your message has been delivered and read, it also shows you that your friend is responding to the message.
More than chat - With BBM you can share files on your phone such as photos and voice notes, all in an instant.

Keep your group in the loop - Multi-person chats are a great way to invite contacts to chat together. BBM Groups lets you invite up to 30 friends to chat together, and go a step further than multi-chat by sharing photos and schedules. And, with Broadcast Message, you can send a message out to all your BBM contacts at once.

Post Updates and stay in the know - BBM lets you post a personal message, profile picture and your current status, and lets your contacts know instantly in Updates.

Your unique PIN - Every BBM user has a unique PIN that maintains your privacy, so you don't have to give out your phone number or email address to a new or casual contact.

BBM will be available as a free download for Android smartphones running Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean (Android 4.x) beginning at 7AM EDT on September 21. BBM for iPhones running iOS 6 and iOS 7 will become available for each market on the App Store schedule of 12:01 AM local time on September 22. For more information, or to download BBM for Android or iPhone, visit www.BBM.com.

BBM will continue to evolve quickly. Later this year, BBM Channels will provide a forum for active, real conversations between you and the people, brands, celebrities, artists, service providers, communities and more, that matter to you. By creating a Channel, individuals and brands can engage their friends and communities in conversations sparked by their thoughts, ideas and passions. Subscribing to a Channel will let you join conversations with people who share your interests. In addition, BBM Video calling and BBM Voice calling are planned for availability for Android and iPhone in a future version.


The latest BlackBerry so far is the Z30 and as we all know its similar to its predecessor Z10 so i've come to compare the difference between the two Sisters lol...

First of all i have to admit that after seeing the two devices i fell so in love with the Z30(maybe coz i like big Phones) and so the Z10 looks like a small phone but after checking the difference between the two smartphones i found out nothing really new. As a matter of fact the Older sister which is Z10 has some features Z30 should have but Hell No! 

 Here are the differences i found out...Although i will update this once the Z30 hits the market and its been test run.

Now lets consider the changes,

The Z10 is still on OS 10, while the Z30 is coming with OS 10.2 but lets not forget Z10/Q10/Q5 will also get an Update to 10.2 by Mid October.

They both weigh the same KG i.e 128kg respectively(Which bothers me coz the Z30 is bigger, How come?)

The display feature is funny, coz the Z10 carries more Pixel than the Z30.

The worst part, Same camera Pixel 8MP(Back)! 2MP(Front)!....Anyways thats all for now you can fish out the rest, but one thing that will make you go eager for Z30 is the new Paratek technology which in summary is a new generation technology for network stability when there's no strong Network coverage click here to read more about the tech in their press release.... in my own opinion Z30 rocks!!!
