Blackberry already trades on the strength of its software’s security, so you’d think that a special $2,000 ultra-encrypted Berry would be a guarantee of privacy. According to Dutch police, not so much.
When it comes to clandestine meet-ups with drug lords, fuck WhatsApp. Turns out BBM is indispensable for interviewing the most wanted fugitive in the world.
Blackberry’s newest phone, the Priv, runs Android. That’s an unusual move for Blackberry; so unusual, in fact, that it has confused poor CEO John Chen, who completely blew this exclusive first look at the Priv.
One of the weirdest little pocket devices in 2015 is Blackberry’s still “rumored” Venice, a slider smartphone with physical keys running near stock Android. With a new hands on video with an evaluation unit of Blackberry’s new smartphone Frankenstein, Baka Mobile’s brief four-minute tour shows off some cool stuff.
Blackberry is betting on you missing those glorious tactile keys that were the company’s signature—which is why it’s getting together with Android to hack together a smartphone called the Blackberry Venice. And today, we got our first good look.
File this one under ‘ faintly plausible rumors’, but Reuters is quoting a number of sources as saying that Blackberry is planning to launch a smartphone running Android sometime this fall.
Intrigue! Mystery! Really shitty phones from 2008! We have a strange situation on our hands: The former co-CEO of BlackBerry recently broke his years-long silence on the company to reminisce about one of its worst failures, the BlackBerry Storm, but he told a weird lie that made the Storm sound like an even bigger…
The Typo is dead, huzzah! BlackBerry has settled its lawsuit against the makers of the the terrible Ryan Seacrest-backed snap-on physical keyboard for iPhones.
When square phones don't quite work and suing Ryan Seacrest is taking too long, what's a BlackBerry to do? Combine the weirdest new hardware trend and a classic old one together in one super (silly?) smartphone. Blackberry just teased the new "dual-curved, all-touch display with a keyboard—yes a slider device!" at…
BlackBerry and Ryan Seacrest are not buds. The first Typo keyboard—an absolutely horrible iPhone keyboard attachment you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy—was just the focus of a lawsuit that cost Seacrest's crew nearly $860,000. Now BlackBerry is back, and suing them again for the Typo 2.
BlackBerry is trying to destroy the best thing it ever made. Not the line of hardware keyboard phones, or the less-relevant-than-ever BBM service. I'm talking about the music video. That mind-blowingly earnest and inexplicable REO Speedwagon cover about BlackBerry 10. It's gone now. What the fuck, BlackBerry?
BlackBerry has jumped into the debate on net neutrality the way that BlackBerry does just about everything these days: ass-backwards. Last night, BlackBerry CEO John Chen wrote a blog post that contorted the standard definition of net neutrality into a complicated pretzel of crazy, insisting that Apple and Netflix are…
Let's talk about the word "classic." Classic can mean "timeless," as in an ageless beauty that never fades or a joke with a punchline that always hits. It can also mean "old," like the candy red '57 Chevy you'll probably never see on a modern highway. Which one describes the BlackBerry Classic? Take a guess.
Reuters is reporting that Samsung has approached BlackBerry with a takeover offer for as much as $7.5 billion, which would be about 38 percent more than the stock market says the Canadian company is even worth. Samsung supposedly wants access to BlackBerry patents and also may be trying to up its security game with…
I must be a masochist. I'm typing this whole review on a Bluetooth keyboard smaller than my two thumbs. Touch-type a dozen letters or so—until I make a mistake, wind up with some gibberish and go back to hunting and pecking once more. Yep, definitely a masochist.
