    Will the Android Security updates be coming from BlackBerry or TCL? I've read a couple of articles that brush over this subject but don't have any real answers. It's not the biggest question out there but it's been rattling around my brain for a couple of days.

    If you buy factory unlocked I would assume they are coming from BlackBerry Mobile because they control the OS and security that goes along with it. For people buying from a carrier it comes through carrier. If/when Verizon gets it here in the states we depend on them for updates.

    I run the PRIV and they have been pretty good about releasing security updates in a timely fashion.

    I guessed it would be something similar to what they're doing now with Android and BB10 but I just needed to check before I go and plonk my money down for one!

    The BlackBerry version of the Android OS is secured and signed by BlackBerry and provided under license to TCL.

    BlackBerry creates the monthly security OS updates and I expect BlackBerry will continue to provide the updates to user devices.
