BlackBerry Motion presented as "unstoppable" in new promo video


Announced in early October as the first dust- and
water-resistant BlackBerry phone ever, the all-touch BlackBerry Motion is not yet
available in the US.
But we assume the handset will be launched stateside soon, as BlackBerry Mobile
keeps on releasing promo videos showcasing its features.

 

The newest BlackBerry Motion promo video – embedded above –
presents the smartphone as being “unstoppable” and “made to live
in the real world.” That’s because, besides dust- and water-resistance,
the handset offers a “premium anti-scratch” screen (a 5.5-inch panel
with 1080 x 1920 pixels), …


BlackBerry Motion to launch November 10th in Canada

The latest handset from BlackBerry Mobile, the BlackBerry Motion, is expected to make its way stateside to Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. Thus far though, there has been no official word about U.S. availability for the “all touch” model. Thanks to an announcement made today by BlackBerry Mobile, we do know that the device will be available in Canada starting on November 10th. On that date, the phone will be available from Koodo and in select Bell, TELUS and SaskTel stores priced at $99 CAD (equivalent to $77 USD at current exchange rates) with a signed two-year pact. The regular retail price is …

Specs for BlackBerry KEYone sequel (BBF100-1) discovered on manufacturer's documents?

The BlackBerry KEYone appears to be the most successful new BlackBerry model in some time. It certainly has everything that a BlackBerry user would hope for in a phone, including a well designed physical QWERTY keyboard featuring a fingerprint scanner embedded in the space bar. Thanks to a power sipping Snapdragon 625 chipset and a 3505mAh battery, the KEYone offers long-lasting battery life that will keep the phone running without requiring that mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

So how do you follow up on a handset that has caught the imagination of the public like the BlackBerry KEYone has? Simple. …

New BlackBerry Motion video promises "32+ hours of battery life" in a phone that's built to last


Not long after we saw the very first official BlackBerry
Motion promo video, we’re now treated with a second look at this interesting, yet to be released
smartphone. As you can see above, BlackBerry Mobile says the Motion is a
device that’s built to last, as it’s got a strong aluminum frame, a
“premium” anti-scratch display, and a dust- and water-resistant design
(IP67-certified). 
Equally important, BlackBerry promises “32+ hours of
battery life” from the 4000 mAh battery that’s found inside the Motion – hopefully,
this means that, on a single charge, the phone will keep its lights …

All-touch BlackBerry Motion stars in first promo video


Officially unveiled last Sunday, the BlackBerry Motion is
one of the most interesting BlackBerry-branded smartphones to date, being the
first to feature water resistance, as well as the first to pack a very generous
4000 mAh battery.

 

The Motion is already available to pre-order in the Middle East, but it has yet to make its way to Western
markets. Until that happens, you may want to check out the very first promo
video that showcases the handset. While the video – embedded above – is quite
short, it offers a nice, clear look at the new smartphone from all sides,
including the back …

BlackBerry makes Samsung Galaxy smartphones even more secure with new SecuSUITE features

Samsung and BlackBerry have teamed up to improved the security of Galaxy smartphones a long time ago. Today, both companies announced their partnership is going deeper with the addition of SecuVOICE in Samsung Knox.

Usually, Samsung Knox comes with some BlackBerry security feature grouped together under the SecuSUITE name. This pack of security features is compatible with Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 edge, Galaxy S8/S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 smartphones, as well as Galaxy Tab S2 (8-inch and 10-inch) and Tab S3 tablets.

BlackBerry Motion is now official; phone carries 4000mAh battery, IP67 certification

The BlackBerry Motion has been unveiled in Dubai today. Built by China’s TCL under its license with BlackBerry, the Motion is an “all touch” model that carries the largest battery ever used to power a ‘Berry branded handset (4000mAh). It also is the first BlackBerry branded phone to feature an IP certification rating. At IP67, the Motion can be submerged in up to 3.3 feet for as long as 30-minutes and emerge unscathed. Still, due to the corrosive nature of salt, we wouldn’t want to put the Motion in the ocean.

The new BlackBerry Mobile device comes with a 5.5-inch Premium Anti-Scratch screen …

BlackBerry Motion will be launched in the US at Verizon, Sprint and AT&T

There’s probably one more important BlackBerry smartphone making its way to shelves this year – the so-called BlackBerry Motion. Previously known as BlackBerry Krypton, the smartphone is expected to make its debut in the coming months.

Although the first picture of the BlackBerry Motion leaked yesterday, few details about its specs are known for the time being. Thankfully, the image reveals a little bit of info such as the fact that it’s an all-touch smartphone, unlike the KEYone which features a QWERTY keyboard.

Also, BlackBerry Motion is supposed to be …

Meet the BlackBerry Motion (Krypton), possibly the first water-resistant BlackBerry phone


A few months back, it’s been confirmed that a full-touch, water-resistant BlackBerry smartphone would be unveiled this October. We
assumed that said handset would be the rumored BlackBerry Krypton, which
recently received several certifications (including from the FCC) on its way to
market. Now, it appears that we can take a proper look at the Krypton for the
very first time, thanks to an image revealed by Evan Blass (aka @evleaks). There’s
a catch, though: Evan Blass says the handset is actually called BlackBerry
Motion, so Krypton must have been just a codename.  

 

As previously …
