Over the past few years, BlackBerry as a mobile phone company has really experienced poor patronage as smartphone users continue to dive into the arms of Apple and Android made and powered smartphones.
A lot of smartphone users will admit that BlackBerry 10 models didn’t compete favorably in the market and to a very large extent, this engineered the release of RIV by BlackBerry. BlackBerry is looking at expanding her smartphone market from the ever decreasing users of BlackBerry made smartphones. The PRIV by BlackBerry is a powerful device that may positively affect BlackBerry’s future in the smartphone industry.
Why PRIV by BlackBerry?
Over the years, the number of Google Android powered mobile phones keep increasing as top mobile phone makers are using the operating system as their mobile operating system. The PRIV by BlackBerry is the first completely Android powered smartphone by BlackBerry. This move arguably is to gain the larger part of the Android market.
One of the issues many users frown at when it comes to BlackBerry is the limited number of apps. This is due to the nature of BlackBerry operating system. The PRIV by BlackBerry is powered by Android and this means more apps and quality apps. This strategy may likely work or what do you think?
Why will PRIV stand out from other Android phones in the market?
Security, security and security! Many experts believe that android powered system lacks security. Samsung which is one of the top makers of android powered phones, tried to overcome the android OS security problems for corporate and government users with a security system known as Knox. When it comes to private and secured smartphones, BlackBerry is the king. BlackBerry was part of the companies that partnered with Samsung in the production of Knox security system. The PRIV is smart and secured according to BlackBerry. Experts are saying that Knox security system did not overcome android security challenges and this definitely became a turn off for security conscious smartphone users. An improved security features is what PRIV by BlackBerry has to offer. The PRIV was designed with several hardware and software security improvements and additions that can benefit the users which made PRIV by BlackBerry different from other android powered smartphones in the market.
The outstanding design
Many android users arguably are used to the usual touch screen keyboard while many BlackBerry users are used to the physical keyboard. The PRIV tried accommodating both users with dual keyboard options: the touch screen and physical keyboard. This is another beautiful reason that may make PRIV stand out from other android smartphones.
Generally, PRIV has the usal BlackBerry design appearance unlike many other android phones with the core android appearance. This may be a plus or a minus for PRIV!! For instance, Die-hard BlackBerry fans may appreciate this while core android users may say No, No, No!!
Well, what is more confusing now is if BlackBerry will continue to manufacture BlackBerry 10 models or simply keep updating the operating system. The PRIV by BlackBerry has come to stay.
