BlackBerry has launched its first ever touchscreen-only Android handset in what could be a last-ditch attempt to keep a hand in the smartphone market.
Last year saw the launch of the Priv, the first of its handsets to work on the Android operating system, but it failed to make an impact on a market dominated by Apple and Samsung – the SIM-only handset price of £569 didn’t help either.
So will the Dtek50 succeed where both the Priv and the Z10 failed?
The news comes just a few months after the ailing tech giant go back in the smartphone game by launching its first Android handset, the Priv.
And it looks like Blackberry has all but given up on its own BB10 operating system, while it will still be providing updates for existing devices, new ones will all be Android enabled.
So what are these new handsets all about?
It’s been a while since we’ve written anything about Blackberry – it’s been a while since anyone has written anything about Blackberry, to be honest – but the mobile brand that launched a billion business calls is back.
And it’s back with a pretty impressive looking smartphone – its first offering to run on the Android operating system.
So, was it worth the wait?
Blackberry was due to announce it’s second quarter results via a conference call this morning (Friday, September 27, 2013) but cancelled as rumours circulated the troubled smartphone giant was the subject of a tentative buyout bid from its largest shareholder, FairFax Financial Holdings.
