    I am looking forward to the new priv since I will get the blackberry productivity features and what seems to be an amazing CAMERA (specifically low light) . The new BlackBerry Dtek describes how it can MONITOR and ALERT but does not state if it will allow you to restrict on a granular level the apps permissions. If Cyanogenmod can give complete control over app permissions BlackBerry should have implemented this feature out the box instead of waiting for M update. Knowing that an app is accessing my contacts without my permission but not being able to change that permission doesn't make sense. Can anyone confirm permission controls are built into the priv

    The new Android version (6.0) allows granular permissions just like BB10. While it is not known if the priv will ship with 6.0, it will 100% get the update.

    I'd rather they spend the time and effort to beat all the other OEMs to Marshmallow and keep up with Android updates. That's a big selling point and one of the primary reasons people root their phones, to get updates which are otherwise abandoned by their manufacturers.

    You've sorta answered your own question - they likely haven't done this (if we are correct they haven't) because it would only cause confusion when the Priv updates to Android M - I'm not sure how the permissions are covered in the compliance but I'm guessing that its a MUST (OEMs must do this) so it would be confusing to control permissions in two places.

    There is also a more straight forward thing - its clear that Chen sees Android as a possible way to profitability - why blow money they haven't got on things that the google team are coding.

    Yeah. We gotta learn them now so we know what we are installing or carrying. Long gone will be the days of "I'm running 10.3.x..."

    The version naming is pretty easy. It's just junk food in alphabetic order.

    ...
    Honeycomb
    Ice Cream Sandwich
    Jelly bean
    Kit Kat
    Lollipop
    Marshmallow

    Yeah but it's weirder than that. Because it doesn't do 1-to-1 for version numbering.

    Cupcake (1.5)
    Donut (1.6)
    Eclair (2.02.1)
    Froyo (2.22.2.3)
    Gingerbread (2.32.3.7)
    Honeycomb (3.03.2.6)[a]
    Ice Cream Sandwich (4.04.0.4)
    Jelly Bean (4.14.3.1)
    KitKat (4.44.4.4, 4.4W4.4W.2)
    Lollipop (5.05.1.1)
    Marshmallow (6.0)

    So you could be running an OS4 called Jelly Bean. Or an OS4 called Kitkat. Or an OS4 called Ice Cream Sandwich.

    KitKat (4.4–4.4.4, 4.4W–4.4W.2)
    Lollipop (5.0–5.1.1)
    Marshmallow (6.0)

    So you could be running an OS4 called Jelly Bean. Or an OS4 called Kitkat. Or an OS4 called Ice Cream Sandwich.

    The naming scheme came about because one of the project managers in the early days had a sweet tooth and named an internal build Petit Four. Imagine if he/she was a fan of Bacon instead.
