Google Play store comes to BB10. Here's how...Hands On BlackBerry's comeback with a new operating system, BB10, turned into one of the greatest tech flops of all time. Almost one year after the launch, BlackBerry still sells far more of its ancient BB7 devices than it does BB10 devices. But could you turn BlackBerrys misfortune to your advantage?
BlackBerry announced today that it would be partnering with Foxconn to produce devices going forward, and CEO John Chen revealed a few details about the first fruits of that partnership on the company’s earnings call today.
The first smartphone from Foxconn with BlackBerry branding should arrive in March or April 2014, he says, and be a 3G device based on BlackBerry 10.
It’s not exactly reminiscent of BlackBerry’s 2008 launch of the Storm, but the Z10 still seems to be off to a good start.
BlackBerry today released the BlackBerry Z10 all-touch smartphone in its home land of Canada on Rogers. The launch was attended by BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins, Rogers President and CEO Nadir Mohamed, as well as plenty of loyal BlackBerry customers.
When BlackBerry 10 launched, it did so with a dearth of big-name applications available in its BlackBerry World content portal. Even now some companies (I’m looking at you Netflix) continue to shy away from the platform, but at least one company has changed its tune on the BlackBerry 10.
