BlackBerry is betting its future on Android and keyboard

Blackberry smartphone

BlackBerry is betting its future on a novel twist to its much-loved keyboard and the belated use of Google’s Android operating system after years relying on its own software. Priv, the Canadian group’s latest device, will feature a slide-down physical keyboard attached to a high-end Android smartphone, marking the first time that the company has dropped its own operating system… The company hopes a longer lasting battery and a number of productivity tools will add to its attractions for business users who dislike the touchscreen keyboards on many modern smartphones… BlackBerry has almost disappeared from the smartphone market… But even though the company missed the early years of the smartphone revolution, the brand is still regarded fondly by many business users.
