All this and much much more on this edition of Mobile Nations Weekly!
CrackBerry — Surprise!
Surprises were on tap this week in the world of BlackBerry. Both good and bad. Sprint killed killed plans to release the BlackBerry Priv, Marshmallow began rolling out to beta testers and finally, Twitter for BlackBerry, which was in desperate need of an update, was updated! That last one might not sound important but it really is. The app was still showing Ellen's now famous selfie from the Oscars in 2014.
Android Central — Turn it up to 10
After plenty of leaks and oh-so-much speculation, the HTC 10 is here. Dropping the "M" from the name didn't change the fact that this is undeniably an HTC phone, and early views are positive. We put together a fantastic first look at the 10, compared its specs to the competition and showed off our initial camera samples. We also broke down our initial thoughts in a special edition HTC 10 podcast!
And if you're interested in getting an HTC 10 for yourself, the pre-order price is $100 off, making it extremely enticing.
Though the HTC 10 announcement was big news this week, we're only slightly removed from retail availability of the LG G5. We posted our complete review of the phone, and followed it up with a second opinion as well. We also reviewed two of its "friends," the LG 360 Cam and the Hi-Fi Plus with B&O Play module.
If you're not interested in either phone, and have a Nexus in your hands, you may be looking at the second iteration of the Android N Developer Preview. It's very early still, and things are broken, but it's awesome to see this coming together.

Windows Central — Updates for updates

Speaking of Windows 10 Mobile a new Anniversary Update Preview (build 14322) rolled out for phone users with a revamped and improved Cortana, support for Ethernet, Notification Center changes, and many more small improvements making the 11th OS update in five months one of the biggest yet. Even Groove Music got a big update too. Watch our hands-on video to see it all in action.
