A new batch of updates to the BlackBerry Priv apps, such as BlackBerry Services, BlackBerry Device Search, and the BlackBerry Keyboard have now started to arrive on the Google Play Store for Priv owners.
BlackBerry is now pushing out its first Marshmallow beta update for the Priv to those who signed up to help test it. In addition, BlackBerry will be sending out invites for T-Mobile customers within the next 24 hours.
In a new interview, BlackBerry CEO John Chen repeated his earlier statements about the company planning to launch two new two mid-range Android phones later in 2016. He also said that the high price of their first Android phone, the BlackBerry Priv, might have hurt its sales.
BlackBerry has cut the price of its unlocked Android smartphone, the BlackBerry Priv, permanently by $50, reducing the price from $699 to $649. The Priv is also available in parts of Europe for a reduced price of €729 and in the UK for £529.
Spring has sprung and to kick things off, BlackBerry has now posted up a sale on ShopBlackBerry where you can save 20 percent off the price of a BlackBerry Passport or BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition.
