Although BlackBerry has undoubtedly had a torrid time over the last 7 or 8 years, it goes without saying they should have adopted the Android OS years ago.
BlackBerry was once the dominating smartphone amongst business users and consumers alike and at its height the Canadian manufacturer had over 20% market share across the globe. Now, it’s less than 1%.
But it’s not all bad news and here’s why.
BlackBerry has finally launched their Android based device, the Priv and underneath that lovely touch-screen there’s a good old fashioned physical keyboard.
Has it been too long since we’ve used a physical keyboard and do we still want to use one? Time will tell and the sales will be the judge.....
If you want the best of what BlackBerry provided on their old smartphones, you’re in luck, as the powerful and secure device will not disappoint.

The Priv really is a stunning looking smartphone with everything we wanted, albeit a few years ago....... Now it’s up to you to decide whether BlackBerry really can turn a corner and get back on its feet.
