    BlackBerry is far from being dead. Just like Android and iOS users still rely on MS services on their respective phones, I'm using the Hub, Launcher and Keyboard on my Android.

    Like @TgeekB said, I'm waiting on MS to get its mobile house in order to be able to return. If it doesn't happen, I'm fine with using BlackBerry products on my Android phone.
    Switching to Android = BlackBerry's death (the rest of my explanation You can find on CrackBerry forum).

    They switched operating systems, so what? The features are still there and that's what makes a BlackBerry stand out from the crowd. Let me guess, you're one of those who had a fit when Dylan went electric?

    Actually BB10 almost killed them. While its a very good mobile OS, it was too little too late.
    Switching to Android and becoming a software focused company has given them new life.

    The latest KeyOne BB looks like it had some design flaws. Anyone catch the highlights showing the screen pop out issue?
    Apparently one person woke up from a nap to a screen dethatched, and someone else dropped it in their car and the screen ended up coming loose.

    There is nothing holding the display in except friction/pressure.

    As someone in the construction industry who is heavily involved in the initial process, this is nothing new. My position exists chiefly because engineers don't talk to each other anymore. A design flaw and a manufacturing flaw surface when this miscommunication is present. Design teams select the material to be used but typically have no hands-on experience with it. They read a submittal sheet and determine it meets the design criteria and go with it. The people who actually put the pieces together need to determine if it will work. Cut sheets don't tell you tensile strength, flexion properties, thermal expansion properties, etc. Especially when you're dealing with plastic as a structural component. With dissimilar materials like plastic and glass, the marriage must be perfect. A thin layer of adhesive sealant can hide a multitude of sins.

    Tighten up Alcatel, you're really starting to tick off me off. BlackBerry, put on your steel-toe shoes and have a meeting with your engineers. There's some a$$ that needs kicking.

    Seems pretty dead to me. My organization was all BlackBerry for around fifteen years ago. four years ago, we bought the horrid Q10 and Z10 devices. Within a very short time, after massive complaints, I bought everyone Samsung Galaxy S6 devices. I now have 150 Q10 and Z10 devices sitting around.

    I also have the older Curve, Bold, Perl, and 7000 series in storage. Those are all useless because we shut down our BES infrastructure. Even ActiveSync is not working on the newer devices because they can't accept our newer certificate and encryption.

    BlackBerry devices are definitely dead. BlackBerry the company is not.

    Aye bummer. Shame all that with such a short cycle on premise.

    Edit: I think at BES15 everything has changed. It can handle all platforms.

    LOL okay...

    By the way, I took my dog on a hike this morning and wanted to stop in Starbucks after. Instead of going in and ordering I was able to pull out my phone, place the order, and have it ready when I arrived. That way my caffeine fix was solved and my dog didn't need to wait for me. Nice to have apps that work. (typing this one-handed using Microsoft word flow keyboard.)

    Agreed, though i have heard about adblockers on rooted Android phones(i recall one called Adaway) that literally used to custom hosts file (which gets updated regulary) to block virtually all ads. I have heard mixed reports about things that it breaks though.

    That culture needs to change. People need to demand ad-free solutions without having to resort to rooting and other hacks. If there's one incontrovertible fact of life is that nature's a mother, so nothing is free. I'm well aware that there are many who can't afford flagship phones and that's cool. Paid apps should be an option for anyone willing to pay for an ad-free experience. More than half of my app collection is paid and the ones that aren't are 1st party, free for everyone like PayPal, etc. I'll be the first in line to buy a paid version of Chrome if it means no ads.

    As long as Android users cling to the XDA mentality of root and ROM to achieve certain results, there will always be ads and bloat.

    I've read that there's a similar app (no adds) on Android I wanted to try it but forgot what it's called. I have a Xbox one so I still get my fix of mytube everyday lol
