  1. BlackBerry has announced a new duo of smartphones at the MWC 2014 - the BlackBerry Z3 and the BlackBery Q20. The BlackBerry Z3 is a full-touch smartphone with a 5" display and runs BlackBerry OS 10.2.1. BlackBerry CEO John Chen says that this is the first phone to come up with the strategic partnership with Foxconn. The Z3 came in and the 5" display boasts a qHD resolution and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 chipset and 1.5GB of RAM. Internal storage is 8GB, but there's no information if there's a microSD card slot available. At the back, there's a 5MP camera, while at the front there's a 1.1MP one. Music lovers would also like the fact that the Z3 features an FM Radio, too. The phone will hit Indonesia in April and will cost less than $200 off contract. As for the BlackBerry Q20, the company has gone back to its roots and the phone features a physical QWERTY keyboard and a trackpad. It seems, the BlackBerry wants to attract some of its core fans back and offers them a phone they'll be productive with. Source
  2. Blackberry talked about a new partnership with Foxconn, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, at the end of December. However, outside of an early 2014 estimate, it didn’t confirm when the fruits of their combined labor would appear. Now, in a report published by Focus Taiwan, it’s indicated we’ll see the first examples during Mobile World Congress, which begins at the end of February. The news comes from Foxconn’s chairman, Terry Gou, who was quoted as saying, “We are working with BlackBerry to design a new device, and we will showcase multiple devices at the trade show in Barcelona in February.” BlackBerry didn’t have much of a presence at CES, and hasn’t made a big impact at MWC for the last couple of years. The change of tactics could be related to the cancelation of BlackBerry Live, its own developer conference where new hardware has been revealed in the past, previously scheduled for May 2014. Before we get too excited about seeing a selection of new BlackBerry phones, the release schedule may mean they won’t be sold in the U.S. or parts of Europe. When the partnership was confirmed, BlackBerry said it would initially sell its new devices in Indonesia, with other unnamed, but fast growing markets to follow. Regarding the hardware itself, it’s not clear whether we’ll be getting some new BlackBerry 10 hardware, or phones running the older BlackBerry OS 7 software. The older operating system was installed on nearly three quarters of BlackBerry phones sold between July and the end of September last year, so can’t be written off just yet. It is almost certain one of the new phones will have a physical keyboard, after John Chen said in a recent interview he wanted the majority of new BlackBerry devices to incorporate the iconic feature. Clinging onto what once made BlackBerry great may help differentiate it from the competition, but most of the smartphone buying public seems to want the cool-factor of a touchscreen. Just not a BlackBerry one. Mobile World Congress starts on February 24 in Barcelona, and we’ll tell you more about the new BlackBerry devices as news becomes public. Source
  3. Typo Products LLC, originally formed by TV personality Ryan Seacrest and entrepreneur Laurence Hallier, is the firm behind the iPhone accessory that BlackBerry has decided looks a little too much like the hardware keyboard found on its smartphones. Because of that, it’s now decided to take its complaint to the courts. Steve Zipperstein, BlackBerry’s General Counsel and Chief Legal Officer said that his company is flattered that someone wants to try and amalgamate its style of keyboard with other smartphones, but it would seem that it’s not flattered enough to not litigate. This is a blatant infringement against BlackBerry’s iconic keyboard, and we will vigorously protect our intellectual property against any company that attempts to copy our unique design. From the beginning, BlackBerry has always focused on offering an exceptional typing experience that combines a great design with ergonomic excellence. BlackBerry’s legal team goes on to say that it believes the Typo keyboard violates its intellectual property rights and that, as a result, it intends to protect those rights via suit filed in the Northern District of California. BlackBerry is widely known to be going through something that we can safely say is more than a sticky patch right now. The thought that it’s now going after a firm that makes an attachment for iPhones that brings a BlackBerry-like hardware keyboard to Apple’s phone won’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s seen their financials. We somehow doubt that the company will be able to stay afloat thanks to whatever it can gain from a company the size of Typo Products, though. Still, every little helps. If you’ve been looking at picking up a Typo keyboard for your iPhone though, it might be worth doing so sooner rather than later, because once BlackBerry’s finished with them, there’s no saying with the company behind it will be able to sell going forward.

  4. While BlackBerry CEO John Chen has recently confirmed that the Canadian OEM will be offering BES for Windows Phone, it seems that the beleaguered manufacturer is not going to offer its BBM for the platform. The messaging application has already been offered to iOS and Android users and large numbers of both downloaded and installed BBM on their phones. The apps allow iOS and Android users to send and receive messages using PIN numbers. Eventually, they will be able to make phone calls, engage in video chat, and populate discussion groups. David Proulx, BlackBerry’s Senior Director of BBM Business Development, explained that the release of BBM for iOS and Android was due to the large number of users of those two platforms. While Windows Phone might not have enough users to make BlackBerry interested in releasing BBM for the platform, that could change. Proulx says, "As other platforms emerge, whichever they may be, we will execute on those platforms as well." BlackBerry's thinking about Windows Phone might be dated. While the platform couldn't get popular apps like Instagram for years, that is changing. Apps like Instagram and WhatsApp are now available in the Windows Phone Store (and are not in BlackBerry World). Windows Phone started to gain traction last year and thanks to the GDR3 update, top shelf models have the same specs as high end Android phones. If Windows Phone continues to pick up users, it won't be long before BlackBerry changes its mind. Source

    BlackBerry wants your help

    BlackBerry is looking for your help. The troubled Canadian handset manufacturer does have a litany of problems, most of which can't be solved by a simple call to arms. But when it comes to adding more emoticons, well that is something that you can help BlackBerry with. On its Facebook page, BlackBerry laid out a whole process for you to submit your new emoticon ideas. All you need to do is click on the sourcelink and like the post, and then leave your submission including a description of what you have in mind. There are some ground rules of course. BlackBerry doesn't want to see vulgar emoticons, or one with sexual overtones. The beleaguered company is asking for submissions that you would consider PG 13. For example, some early ideas include a facepalm emoticon and one for a high five. Another suggestion was for a wtf emoticon, but we don't think that it meets with the PG13 requirement. BlackBerry is taking submissions through 5pm EST on November 20. We'd love to tell you that those ideas being accepted by the company will be rewarded with a prize or a new phone, but the truth is that you are merely turning over your idea to the company. If your idea is used by BlackBerry in the future, at the least you can tell your kids and grandkids that a particular emoticon was your idea. Source

    [Infographic] Browser Wars

    According to New Relic’s data, which analyzed more than 16.8 million page loads from early October through early November last year, BlackBerry 10 devices loaded web pages in 1.55 seconds on average. The second-fastest web browser, Opera Mini 4.2, wasn’t even close, with page load times that averaged 4.78 seconds. In other words, the BlackBerry 10 browser is more than three times faster than its next-closest competitor. Apple’s Safari browser on the iPad came in at No. 3 with an average page load time of 4.91 seconds, and no other native web browser was even included in New Relic’s top-9 rankings. An infographic showcasing the company’s test results follows below. Source
  7. BlackBerry’s CMO Frank Boulben has confirmed the BBM messenger for Android and iOS will be released “within days”. The client has been teased a lot in the past few months with the promise the released date is getting closer. We even saw a beta version makes it to the Apple’s AppStore, but it was quickly taken down. Well, it seems the BBM is finally ready and its arrival is only a matter of days. Frank Boulben shared this info alongside other reassuring piece of info that BlackBerry is doing well and the development is going according to plan. You can find about the open letter from BlackBerry to its partners and customers right here. According to BlackBerry six million people have already signed up to be notified for the released of the BBM on Android and iOS. SOURCE
