Blackberry Is Making an Android Phone… And It Will Probably Be a Disaster

By on July 3, 2015 at 9:10 AM.

Optimistic investors have sent BlackBerry shares on a roller coaster ride over the past few years, but reality seems to be setting in. After briefly rocketing up to the $12 range in mid-January, the company’s stock has seen a gradual decline back to under $8, down about 27.5% so far in 2015. Brief runs of optimism are quickly offset by the recurring realization that BlackBerry doesn’t seem any closer to finding its place in the new mobile landscape today than it was a few years ago.

Why Android Fans Should be Grateful Motorola Still Exists

Motorola’s smartphones don’t get the same level of hype and attention that Samsung’s do, and that’s actually a real shame. One of the things that really impressed us about the second-generation Moto X in particular was how it didn’t spam us with gimmicky software — instead, the few additions it made to Android were really well thought out and useful.
