AT&T Will Be The First US Carrier To Offer The BlackBerry PRIV Starting November 6th

The PRIV represents a turning point for beleaguered BlackBerry. Once the most dominant player in the smart phone arena, BlackBerry has diminished worse than the elves of Rivendell since the rise of iOS and Android. Desperate for relevancy, BlackBerry has abandoned its own OS in favor of the OS created by the competitor that crushed it into near oblivion. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, right?

Say what you want about BlackBerry's past blunders, at least their first entry into the Android arena comes with high-end specs and some pretty compelling reasons to consider it over other competitors.

Now, a few weeks after the PRIV's announcement, we have confirmation of when BlackBerry fans, or curious Android lovers, can get their hands on the new device.

Google's New SVP Of Android Says More Emojis Are On The Way

Words are for losers. As someone who makes a living putting them in a pleasing order, I should know. The future belongs to emojis, tiny, semi-open images that boil the nuances of self-expression down to a series of postage stamps. And at the moment, Apple's iOS has an advantage in that respect: a recent software update gave iPhones and iPads access to new emojis that don't appear on other hardware, like Android. So when Android users can't see the brilliance of a pixel art middle finger and thus miss the subtle meaning behind their iPhone-using friend's text message, the world is poorer for it.

AOSP Changelog Posted For Android v6.0.0_r1 (MRA58K) And The v5.1.1 October Security Updates r19-r24

With any update to Android, it can be good to know more than just the major features and changes. Sometimes we've got to dig into the deepest little adjustments to figure out why something is working better – or worse – than before. We've now got the changelogs posted for all of the Android versions released yesterday, including both the major update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow and the much smaller 5.1.1 security updates for October.

The v5.1.1 updates aren't very exciting since they only account for about a dozen security fixes. The changelogs may not even be the best way to read about what has changed because there's a post in the Android Security Updates group that lists each of the issues that have been resolved with this month's updates.
