    Maybe this has been highlighted before, but I have not seen it. I can run Android apps on my Z10 but can not change the Permissions when an app or a game wants unreasonable access to different parts of my stuff. That's why I don't install any Android apps. How will a full Android OS be any different? Am I missing something?

    Chen said that the average consumer doesn't care about security, enterprise and government care about security, consumers care about privacy. You get privacy through security. They are giving consumers more privacy by securing the phone with a tougher kernal, DTEK app, and Safeguard.

    Yes, in other words, you are getting security, not privacy. In light of that, they should have called the phone, "Sec," or perhaps, "Suc."

    From the things we know right now: The Priv won't provide more privacy for consumers as any other Android device. It's more secure but not "privier".

    Because there is more than one security aspect to Android by BlackBerry, it would be called "Secs". PLURAL.
