download Android whataspp on your BB phone. That will continue to work after the original whatapp stops.
I have been using @ BB in the last 6 yrs,First was Bold and now currently a Z30.I find this phones to be remakeable depite many who prefer Anorid once.Now we have to upgrade to either prev or Dtec as Whatapp doent support BB after end of this year.I am hoping that we can get stock of accessories.Planing to go fo a dtec 50,first traying to souce screen protector. If anyone can get it pls mail me at email@example.com.I am from Malaysia
I had been been using 2 BB phones, a 2010 Bold and a 2014 Z30. Both phones are rugged, extremely dependable and the OS with BB10 hasn't crashed a single time in 3 years. Besides, which other OS has the capability to run to OS at the same tim. I have used Android with their Amazon store a lot. With no popular app supporting BB10, I am ready to shift to Android but have not been particularly impressed with the pricing of Priv and the looks of DTEk 50. Hope they come out with a good looking reliable phone with an affordable price.
I have been using a Passport as my daily driver and I love BB10. However, with more and more Android apps giving compatibility issues (FB messenger, Tumblr, Audible amongst others), I look forward to trying out a BB Android device.
I do hope that they will turn on the FM radio possibility, for that is the only maybe for me to not start using the DTEK60... otherwise I might end up with an LG G5 using the BB Hub+ and Priv Keyboard.
And yes, I would love another PKB BB... so I keep my fingers crossed for that too,

*they should consider to have dual SIM model also, especially for Asian market
Offten, we talk smack about things we're jelous of. Blackberry has pioneered some awsome features for smartphones over the years, and being Canadian, it was nice to keep it real, and keep it here instead of off shore. It's to bad the world has gone android everything. I've had Blackberrys for years and I'm pissed they went android. OS10 was an awesome operating system, my friends and associates have "other" phones and still say wow, you can do that on your phone? Example, I can fast forward adds on Youtube, they can't. That's one of many little things that add up to big things ,that keep me in a BlackBerry. I don't doubt that they may be "DONE" but I don't have to like it!

Like it or not the keyboard feature was really unique for blackberry. Instead of making this phone if they made priv 2 that would be much appreciated.
AsusTech, 03 Oct 2016DTEK50 is the most secured Android not the Priv anymoreDon't they have the same security software on it lol? So they'd both be the most secure android phones... along with the DTEK60 when it's released..
mr david, 29 Sep 2016 i cant see why i shouldnt by a different android phone. there is nothing special about this p... moreSecurity and software.
The PRIV is still the most secure Android phone. Hasn't been fully rooted yet. While this is a downside to a lot of Android users, it does show the level of security they have put into their phones.
mr david, 29 Sep 2016 i cant see why i shouldnt by a different android phone. there is nothing special about this p... moreNot true. BlackBerry has very nice messaging software and no bloatware. Plus stem security software. Try before bashing. I have tried many androids and BlackBerry functionality out of the box is unmatched. Another plus, their phones don't explode.
if this true the mobile will have a good market in Saudi Arabia
because we love the long battery and good cam front and back
also black berry keyboard is the best.
waiting for it :)
