BlackBerry Priv pulled a rabbit out of the hat

BlackBerry Priv

Just when you though BlackBerry was dead and obsolete, they managed to pull a rabbit out of the hat. The rabbit they pulled out of the hat is in the shape of a little green robot, commonly known as Android.

That’s right, BlackBerry have started using the Android Operating system in their latest smart phone, the BlackBerry Priv. Now this may seem pretty standard for a smart phone manufacturer, after all Samsung, SONY and many other cell phone manufacturers use Android to run their devices so then why is the BlackBerry Priv so unique? Well there is far more to the operating system than meets the eye.

Sure BlackBerry may seem to have thrown in the towel, but the outstanding feature of this phone is still very much what BlackBerry has always stood for – namely security.

Today’s cell phones focus of the bells and whistles. A high density camera, waterproof casing, fast processing power and a tough touch sensitive screen. The BlackBerry Priv has all of that, but it has one more piece of the puzzle which many other cell phones just don’t have – the ability to keep your private information private.

With so many aps on the market these days needing information from your device it is almost impossible to stay safe. Why a calculator app would needs your GPS location? More importantly who is receiving that information? With the BlackBerry Priv there is no need to even worry about that, your information is safely locked inside of your phone.

Now it is also true that under BlackBerry 10 OS BlackBerry kept you safe from scrupulous apps anyway, mainly because BlackBerry doesn’t have access to that many apps in the market. Now operating the Android Operating System BlackBerry has access to hundreds of thousands of Android based apps, the very things that it is trying to keep you safe from – so in a way BlackBerry jumped into Pandora’s Box.
