Anyone with a BlackBerry device is going to have a few more app updates than usual today. BlackBerry is announcing new versions of eight apps today, all of which are in the Play Store. Not every update here is huge, but none of them are boring "optimization and bug fix" updates, either.

BlackBerry may start licensing its Android ROM, called 'BlackBerry Secure'

BlackBerry has always placed a high priority on the needs of businesses, especially when it comes to security. All of the company's Android phones come with the 'DTEK' security suite, and BlackBerry has done a pretty good job of pushing out Google's monthly security patches.

And TCL, the device's manufacturer, has even improved the build quality since launch.

Sprint says KEYone's bloatware bug will be fixed in an OTA update

The KEYone is available as an unlocked phone, and that's probably how most BlackBerry fans will buy it. However, there's a Sprint version, too. Owners of the Sprint version recently reported an aggravating battle with bloatware, which was constantly reinstalling itself on the phone.

BlackBerry's WorkLife Persona app makes it easier to use your own device for work [APK Download]

Many businesses have to offer their staff work phones so they can get stuff done. This often leads to carrying two phones around, which can be a bit of a pain. One way of solving that issue, as well as being slightly less wasteful, is to introduce a BYOD scheme (bring your own device). This is theoretically possible with an Android device out-of-the-box, as you can have different user profiles. Some Android phones are also dual SIM, so you can use two different numbers. Switching between profiles is often slow and inconvenient, however. A new app from BlackBerry aims to improve on this.

Sprint will be the first carrier in the U.S. to get BlackBerry's KEYone, available starting tomorrow

BlackBerry's KEYone officially launched in Canada a couple of months ago.

New BlackBerry KEYone units won't break as easily

The KEYone is the first QWERTY BlackBerry phone manufactured by TCL. Despite having a great deal of software problems at launch, many owners enjoy simply having a modern keyboard smartphone.

[Deal Alert] BlackBerry Priv STV100-2 32GB down to $225 on eBay

By now the BlackBerry Priv has lost most of its shine and appeal, but if you're looking for a good enough smartphone at a decent price either for a relative or as a second device, then the Priv is worth considering. Add the fact that it's one of the rare Android smartphones with a physical keyboard and it can easily tickle the fancy of a few users who won't touch a phone without a real QWERTY.

The Priv has been dropping in price every few weeks lately. The last time we saw a deal on one, it was $259.99 on eBay, and now it's even lower.
