  1. With BlackBerry 10.2.1 currently being tested internally at BlackBerry, a few screenshots have leaked out allegedly showing the Google Play Store running on the BlackBerry 10 platform. A new Android Runtime is expected on the next build of BlackBerry 10 which would allow the Android flavored application store to be available to BlackBerry users so that they can download and install Android apps and other content. For BlackBerry 10 users, having the Google Play Store on their device would mean no more sideloading of Android apps. And this could quickly address one of the major shortcomi
  2. BlackBerry rejected approaches from Apple, Microsoft, Lenovo and others to break up the ailing Canadian company and split its assets, insiders claim, with the firm’s patent portfolio apparently of particular interest. Both Microsoft and Apple were eager to acquire BlackBerry’s wireless patents, sources told Reuters, but the firm’s board decided a piecemeal sell-off was not in the interest of all stakeholders. Those stakeholders considered were not only shareholders in BlackBerry, the insiders say, but customers, suppliers, and regular employees. Different companies – also including Ci
  3. Rumors surrounding the upcoming BlackBerry update have made quite a stir in recent days, as it was speculated that it would allow access to the Google Play store to install Android apps. A BlackBerry spokesman has recently quashed allegations that BlackBerry is planning any sort of Google Play access. Nevertheless, insiders have revealed that the update will include the Android runtime, which means that you’ll be able to install and run Android apps. The official line from BlackBerry to n4bb goes like this: “We can confirm that there is no planned support for Google Play on BlackBerry.
  4. Just a couple of days ago, i showed you some screenshots that appeared to show the Google Play Store running on BlackBerry 10. While the platform can run certain Android apps, it cannot run any Google Play services or apps approved by Google. Thus, seeing the Google Play Store running on BlackBerry 10 seemed to indicate that a new level of cooperation had been reached between Google and the Canadian based OEM. But a statement released on Tuesday from the troubled manufacturer (that would be BlackBerry), says that there is "no planned support" for Google Play on BlackBerry. The statemen
  5. Google’s Android operating system managed to grab exactly 81.0 percent smartphone share in the third quarter of 2013. Rounding out the top four smartphone operating systems were iOS at 12.9 percent, Windows Phone at 3.6 percent, and BlackBerry at 1.7 percent. The latest quarterly figures come from IDC, which summarized its findings in the following chart: IDC estimates total Android smartphone shipments worldwide reached 211.6 million units, letting Google’s mobile operating system power four out every five of the 261.1 million smartphones that shipped last quarter. The figure allowe
  6. Yesterday, BlackBerry starting rolling out its BlackBerry 10.2.1 update. In the U.S., Verizon customers sporting the BlackBerry Z10 are the first to receive it. And, as you will be able to see from the video below, using the Nova launcher allows Android 4.2.2 to run on a BlackBerry Z30 powered by the BlackBerry 10.2.1 OS. While not everything is working as it would on an Android model, the YouTube app does open after a slight delay. This gives BlackBerry users a proper YouTube app for the first time. Currently, 'Berry users pressing the YouTube icon on their phone are re-directed to the mobile
  7. In the heat of its financial struggles, BlackBerry just got a breath of fresh air thanks to the US Department of Defense, which has placed an order for 80,000 of its smartphones. As part of its smartphone expansion strategy, the Department of Defense is also giving 1,800 undisclosed mobile devices to its employees including "Apple iPad 3 and iPad 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets and Samsung Galaxy S3, and Motorola RAZR," the statement reads. The news caused quite a stir in the stock market, as the company's stock shares peaked to $10 per share. In the end of last y
  8. BlackBerry Product Manager Michael Clewley's BBM Channel has tipped one of the features coming to BlackBerry 10.2.1. The Canadian OEM will add a "Floating Action Bar" above the keyboard. BlackBerry says that some BlackBerry 10 users, not used to the Gesture based UI, were finding themselves lost on certain pages. Perhaps the most important action being added with the feature is the back button, although there are other common actions that will be offered by the bar. After the update comes to your BlackBerry 10 device, you will have to turn it on in "options". The floating bar will be availa
  9. BlackBerry is working on a version of BBM for Android phones powered by the Gingerbread build of the open source OS. The messaging app will thus be available for the 21% of Android users still using Android 2.3.3-2.3.7. The app is now in external beta testing and is expected to be launched in February. BlackBerry says that it is excited to have millions of additional Android users using BBM. Currently, the app requires subscribers to have Android 4.0 or higher. On its blog, BlackBerry indicates that it is offering this version of BBM in response to demand for it from those Android users spo
  10. BlackBerry has just announced the latest 10.2.1 update for its BlackBerry OS. It brings lots of new features, and is compatible with all BlackBerry 10 smartphones. The rollout has already started so you can update your device right now. Here is the complete official change log:Customize Pinch Gesture to Filter BlackBerry Hub – BlackBerry Hub lets you access all your messages and notifications in one place. A new feature lets you instantly filter the message list in the Hub. You can customize the Hub to show only Unread Messages, Flagged Messages, Draft Messages, Meeting Invites, Sent Messages
  11. Last month, we wrote about many of the changes expected in BlackBerry 10.3, but at the time we only had some screenshots to show you of the updated OS. Now, we can show you a video that shows off some of the changes that BlackBerry users can expect when the next update is made to BlackBerry 10. One of the most eagerly awaited features is BlackBerry's virtual personal assistant. Called Intelligent Assistant, this app does the same things that Siri, Google Now and Cortana do. At least it is supposed to, when it works. On the video, it was clear that Intelligent Assistant was neither intelligent
  12. BlackBerry reveals when to expect BBM for Windows Phone Prior to that, BlackBerry had given no indication that it was even interested in launching software for Windows Phone, the rival platform that has pushed it into fourth place in the smartphone market. Indeed, as recently as January, the company reiterated that it had "no plans" for Microsoft's mobile OS. Now, though, those plans are very much in the works, but the exact release date remains ambiguous. The latest information, which comes via TechCrunch, was revealed by BlackBerry CEO John Chen in a company earnings call this week.
  13. Blackberry’s Messaging Service, BBM, has been made available for non-blackberry devices for a while now. Now the application will be packing some new features that may bring in some new users and keep current ones excited. The first of the new features is something that doesn’t seem like it should have been left out for so long: the ability to share photos in group chats. Blackberry has also upped the size of the files that you’re able to share using the application: from 6MB to 16MB. Blackberry has also made the sizes of their emoticons bigger, as per customer demand. No date has be
  14. BlackBerry has released their BBM application for the Windows Phone platform. The app is beta for now, so you will need an invite to be able to use the app on your Windows Phone device. The app will be open for everyone but until then, this is only for those with an invite for the private beta. Download Link BBM for Windows beta Source
  15. There’s good news and bad news for executives in Redmond today — Windows Phone’s market share has edged above BlackBerry’s, but the overall size of Microsoft’s slice of the pie hasn’t budged. According to the latest data from ComScore, Windows Phone now accounts for 3.2 percent of handsets in the United States, with BlackBerry lagging behind on 3.1 percent. Dig deeper into the figures and the news isn’t so encouraging for Microsoft. That 3.2 percent market share is the same as it was last October, so Windows Phone hasn’t made any inroads into the iOS/Android stranglehold. BlackBerry’s sha
  16. Live on stage at Nokia World 2013, WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum announced the instant messaging service now has 350 million monthly active users. That's up by 50 million since August, when the network announced it had hit 300 million. Koum also announced that some 250,000 users per day are registering for WhatsApp using Nokia devices — including Symbian, Asha, and Lumia handsets — over 7 million per month. source
  17. About a month after the first attempt failed, BlackBerry is planning on trying once again to get BBM for iOS and BBM for Android available for users of those two platforms. On Monday, BlackBerry crowed about the 1.1 million Android users that installed an unreleased version of the app back in September. It was that unofficial version, along with a number of bogus BBM apps put up in the Google Play Store, that made BlackBerry's task too difficult to complete at the time. Meanwhile, more than 1 million Apple iPhone users have side loaded BBM on their phone. According to the beleaguered
  18. BlackBerry may be having problems at home, but on the other side of the world BlackBerry Jam Asia 2013 is in full swing with some exciting news about the company’s popular messaging service. BBin reports that the Waterloo company will launch BBM on Windows desktop computers, after unveiling the software at the expo in Hong Kong, though there’s no set release date at this point. BBM was scheduled to launch on Android and iOS devices over the past weekend, marking the service’s expansion beyond BlackBerry’s own hardware. However, the release was quickly cut short due to technical issues wit
  19. Nokia has struggled to get into the US market for years now, but it seems that its hard work is finally starting to pay off. Counterpoint Research reports that in Q3 of this year Nokia leapfrogged several makers to reach the fourth spot among smartphone vendors in the US. This sounds less impressive when you look at the numbers - Nokia holds a smidgen over 4% of the market. But you have to look deeper - in Q2 this year, Nokia was at a 1.4%. It took it almost year to get to that point, in Q3 2012 Nokia barely registered at 0.7%. So in three months Nokia more than doubled its market sh
  20. BlackBerry has just announced the rollout schedule of the OS 10.2 firmware update. BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 and Q5 are the devices eligible for upgrade, while the Z30 is running on 10.2 out of the box. The BlackBerry 10.2 update brings a new Priority Hub, BBM Video with Natural Sound feature, messages preview from any app, better keyboard, easier sharing options, lock screen notifications, better calendar and reject a call with SMS/BBM option. BlackBerry 10.2 launches for the BlackBerry smartphones in Africa, Asia Pacific, Canada, Europe and the Middle East this week. Latin America
  21. We've seen a steady stream of potential suitors for BlackBerry in recent months, but unnamed sources are now claiming ex-Apple CEO John Sculley is looking into taking control of the company. The Globe and Mail reports that Sculley, who famously helped oust Steve Jobs from Apple in the '80s, is working with partners in "exploring a joint bid" for the troubled Canadian smartphone maker. Although he refused to confirm or deny the rumor, Sculley has long been a fan of the company. Speaking to The Globe and Mail, Sculley says "there's a lot of future value in Blackberry," but that "without
  22. BlackBerry's BBM app was downloaded 10 million times within 24 hours, but at least on Android, some of its many positive reviews seem to come from a less than savory source. Blogger Terence Eden looked through more reviews and found more evidence that somebody was astroturfing the Play Store. In addition to the sheer numbers he found, at least one person seemed to have accidentally copied and pasted more of the text than intended: "Dear Mr Ahmed, please post the following comment on the new BlackBerry Messenger APP..." Fake reviews are a frequent issue across many sites, and a September cr
  23. Today was always going to be a momentous day for BlackBerry, with a looming deadline for its proposed takeover deal with Fairfax Financial Holdings. As it turns out, the full takeover isn't taking place, but the company is going to receive an investment of $1 billion from Fairfax and a group of other institutional investors as it seeks to steer a new course. That will involve some major reshuffling at board level, starting with CEO Thorsten Heins, who is stepping down to be replaced by interim CEO John S. Chen. In the wake of the news, BlackBerry's already battered stock price has taken yet an
