Honest Realist, 08 Jan 2016It proves that Android is free open source crap that any OEM can use. Honest Realist,
AOSP is open source, Android is not, mainly because it has a bunch of propietary stuff from Google, commonly referred as the GApps. That is freely distributed, its another matter and a subject for a long discussion, since lots of hardware manufacturers have paid royalties to Apple and Microsoft and whatnot patent troll.
Regarding the 'crap' adjective, what is your base of comparison? iOS? Win10? I consider both of those on the trailing edge of innovation. That those OS have less "fragmentation", I agree, but they have such a small installed base and an utter lack of variety in hardware compared to Android that makes the point moot.
Why would you laugh at people that have a great phone. I have two BB10 devices and I am not the least bit worried. It is my understanding there is security updates already scheduled for BB10. They are great phones. I feel sorry for you that you feel motivated to go call everyone you have never met idiots. Who is the real idiot here?
.alpha, 08 Jan 2016Laughing at those idiots that bought Z10,Q10,Z3,Z5,Q5 and Passport. Your phone will have less ... moreActually older BlackBerry devices continue to receive updates for years after they are no longer sold. One of the benefits of buying a BlackBerry.
a bit too late and on my mind BBs are expensive phone with low spec.
This is the best thing blackberry can do. Let face it. The blackberry is was not a big seller in this day in age. iOS and Android rules the smartphone OS business.
However, ChenÂ’s comments are not a death sentence for BlackBerry 10. Chen told CNET his hope is that quality Android phones like the Priv and the handsets coming in 2016 will raise the profile of the BlackBerry brand.
If that happens, BlackBerry may have a strong enough business to bet on a BlackBerry 10 handset once again.
Laughing at those idiots that bought Z10,Q10,Z3,Z5,Q5 and Passport. Your phone will have less update than Android.

billy boy, 08 Jan 2016A Nokia is not dead. Do your homeworkIts just a mere shadow of its former self.
billy boy, 08 Jan 2016A Nokia is not dead. Do your homeworkFrom the biggest to near the bottom (if not ON the bottom)...you do your research.
Now that is a great decision. If only nokia had done this much earlier then they wouldn't have gotten duked by microsoft and stephen elop. Android is where the interest is at.
tipadowemo, 08 Jan 2016How about android roms for the z10,Q10,Z3,Z5,Q5 and the passport Do you realize how old those phones are?
Airbus A340-500, 08 Jan 2016BlackBerry, the elitists who have finally been forced to bow & eat their pride. Wonder if... moreApple would NEVER let ANY other company use their OS... ever :) That's why there are 2300+ Android OEM's. It's also why the Android market is fragmented beyond repair, and lastly it's also why Android won't be enough to save BB.
