Porsche Design has put its rumored BlackBerry smartphone on sale in the United Kingdom, one aimed at mobile phone users looking for a premium and rare device. Just like the BlackBerry P'9981, the P'9982 is available to purchase through London's Harrods department store at a price of ¬£1,500 ($2,400) off-contract.
The Google Play store could be making an appearance in BlackBerry OS 10.2.1, if new photographs are to be believed. Recently surfaced images appear to show the store running on a BlackBerry Z10, which if true could suggest that owners of recent BlackBerry 10 devices may have more options than BlackBerry World to install their apps from in future.
BlackBerry is attempting to improve the sales of some of its smartphones by making them available directly. The manufacturer is selling the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 through its website, with the incoming BlackBerry Z30 also being seen at the FCC ahead of its expected release on networks in Canada in the near future.
BlackBerry has added another touchscreen-only device to its BlackBerry 10 OS range, as reported previously. The
A remodelled version of the BlackBerry Z10 by Porsche Design has allegedly appeared online. Images reportedly showing the smartphone, complete with the Porsche Design logo at the top of the device, are accompanied by details suggesting it will have its own version of the BlackBerry 10 user interface, and a claimed price tag of $2,000.
The second all-touchscreen device from BlackBerry running the companyís do or die BlackBerry 10 OS has leaked ahead of its launch. The new A10 is said to center on a much larger 5-inch display than the current 4.2-inch display on the Z10. However, according to the early rumors the A10 may limit resolution to 720p, rather than they 1080p that feature on some competing handsets.
BlackBerry is planning to lay off more workers and regroup financially after an underwhelming quarter post-BlackBerry 10 device launch, according to comments made in the phone manufacturer's annual shareholder meeting. Aside from a large number of employees in the future, the company has already fired the vice president for sales in the United States Richard Piasentin.
BlackBerry shipped just 2.7 million BlackBerry 10 OS smartphones in the first quarter of its 2013 to 2014 financial year, according to released results. Though the sales of the Q10 and Z10 devices could be seen as disappointing, the news is worsened by it being less than half of the 6.8 million phones shipped in total for the period, with the bulk of that figure made up of previous-generation devices.
BlackBerry has asked for US regulators to investigate claims made by an analyst over its flagship handset. The manufacturer is filing a dispute with the Ontario Securities Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission over comments made by Jeff Johnson of Detwiler Fenton, claiming that returns of the Z10 were exceeding sales of the handset.
The BlackBerry Z10 is a highly repairable smartphone, according to a recent teardown by by iFixit. The repairability score of 8 out of 10 issued by the disassembly experts stems from a relatively easy to deconstruct handset using little in the way of adhesive, combined with its easy-to-replace battery.
