BlackBerry Announces to Completely Move on Android OS


Recently, BlackBerry has announced its first Android handset Priv. The device recognized well in the market, after the warm reception of the device now the company has announced to move Android handsets.  At CES, John Chen, CEO of BlackBerry confirmed that all upcoming mobiles by the company will run the Android operating system.



We can say that the move is made because Android operating system is user friendly and widely accepted by users. The company has struggled to give a better product from last decade. Now the company will tap those customers who care less about BlackBerry security and enterprise system and love more with apps and games. So instead of BB10 the company will run a Google operating system in its upcoming mobiles.

At CES 2016, Las Vegas, CEO John revealed that the company will unveil new devices soon. The focus will be to provide a high quality device with latest technology and brilliant features. As Priv mobile has various best features that made users content. The device was targeted to corporate sector so it came with strong security and enterprise features. The strong security system allows user to keep important files and data in the mobile. The device features a 5.4 inch screen and QWERTY keyboard. It is powered by Snapdragon 808 and have 3GB RAM. It runs the Android 5.1 version which is upgradable in Android 6.0 Marshmallow.


Chen didn’t utter any word against release date of upcoming devices, but we can expect that next flagship will come in 2016.
