Finally the war of OS almost to be over . . . Who ever win, we still consume them . . .
Congrats to Blackberry. Welcome to Android world where we have more useless apps than the useless human in the world. Just kidding. Android is great. Really. Love it. Happy to know that most apps are free unlike Apple App Store. Blackberry need to install one more thing in their device; fingerprint scanner. How hard could it be. Just put it at the back like everyone else. Beside, I read that fingerprint scanner price has drop significantly and only cost $5 for one of it.

Generally that means 2 years. Plus it is Android so it won't stop working overnight. Many Android OEMS are still leaving their older hardware outdated at 4.2 or Kitkat. They expect people to buy new hardware each year.
Blackboo, 19 Dec 2015I dont care if BB SUCCEED. but i hate BB as a company. They promised my Playbook a software up... moreBo-hoo. Sell your PlayBook and move on. It is EOL and they just couldn't get BlackBerry 10 to work on it- it would have crippled your tablet.
thank you blackberry. i think this means ypur phones will be cheaper.
kevin97, 20 Dec 2015Please read carefully, actually Blackberry sold less devices in the last quarter, 700000, vers... moreyup, you're right.
the money came from other non-smartphones department.
blackberry's mobile phone department is still in red zone.
Please read carefully, actually Blackberry sold less devices in the last quarter, 700000, versus 800000 in the previous quarter, but just at a higher price. The recovery came from multiple sources, not necessarily from smartphone sales.
The Blackberry Priv will have to be heavily discounted in order to make an actual positive impact. If they keep the current price the sales will decline even more.
Anonymous, 19 Dec 2015Need midrange BB on Android.so so true.....

Awesome hardware but prices need to come down to become really competitive

Maybe the low brow people on GSMArena didn't know that BBRY is more than a handset company, with its operating system powering 2/3rds of new cars sold and 80% of medical devices. BlackBerry has done very well this year and is even in the business of buying other companies. Glad to see some positive news coming in the handset division.
I dont care if BB SUCCEED. but i hate BB as a company. They promised my Playbook a software updated to OS 10. Where the effen is it. Never buy BB device again.
My friend, Fawzy Moghabghab, has always predicted this resurgence and it's tantamount to a miracle that his prediction came through.
Android is your best bet! Look at Samsuck
Keep launching devices like Priv but not with that insane pricing.
Congratulations Blackberry you deserve it. I hope Sony and Nokia rise up again.
