BlackBerry's Intro Video For The PRIV Makes A Case For Why You Might Want It Over Other Android Phones

The PRIV is BlackBerry's first true Android device. It's something that we, and a considerable portion of die-hard BlackBerry customers, have been looking forward to for a long time. But there are a couple of things that might make potential buyers trepidatious: one, a relatively high price tag of $699, and two, well, it's BlackBerry's first entry on a new software platform. So what are the highlights, aside from the obvious slide-out QWERTY keyboard? BlackBerry would like to show you.

That tablet you carry around is so puny. Look at it, fitting comfortably in your hands and sporting not a single built-in handle. Outrageous. Samsung has made the rumored Galaxy View official, and it's very much the opposite of your wussy little tablet. It's big and it has a handle.

HTC One A9 Review: Pretty, Pretty, Pretty Good (Pretty Good)

At a wedding reception this past Saturday, I finally had a chance to put the HTC One A9 side-by-side with an iPhone 6. “It looks just like an iPhone. Even the little camera bump looks similar,” remarked the person whose iDevice I had temporarily pilfered for this little visual experiment.
