    Android is based on the Linux kernel, no reason why it can't be secured.

    You've got the Big Brother developing it. It can't be secure.

    But as long as it's free software that respects the 4 freedoms, we can audit it, change it, and send the patches back to the developer. If the developer contains botnet code, we fork it change it and release our own version of it.

    GNU/Linux is only as secure as one manages it. By default, GNU/Linux is inherently secure but certainly not the most secure PC platform available. Try OpenBSD if you want a robust high-quality OS that has effective exploit mitigation capabilities.

    "If BlackBerry can successfully achieve its aims by using the most popular mobile OS in the world, securing it, and running their own software on it, then they will have done what they originally set out to do in those early days of RIM."

    My question is: and if not?
    It may work, especially on the corporate side. Let's hope so. Blackberry still has a lot to give to this sector if they become accepted again.

    It's no gambit. Being slider is a wrong move. Narrow screen is a wrong move. Tall screen is a wrong move. Having double keyboard is a wrong move. Many people refuse to try it without even asking for price. Check mate.

    Two and half years ago the corporate side was waiting on BlackBerry.... today they aren't. And I think the few enterprise customers that did go with BlackBerry and their BES12/BB10 solution... are not going to like the way BlackBerry has pulled the rug out from under them.

    Just the fact that this is still a "final gambit" is something I think will scare enterprise customers away. Android has issues, it needs regular updates (which is why many don't use Android in enterprise or only use top of the line devices)... will the PRIV get all the Android security fixes over then next two or three years?

    A few lazy CTO's might stick with the new BlackBerry solutions.... but I think any CFO's or CEO's that look at the issues, are going to want something more stable and long term.

    The square screen contributed to the failure of BB10.

    Using android 4.4.4 daily, I really miss the UI and gesture navigation of BB10. If the Pirv delivered the same use experience as BB10 it would be worth looking into, otherwise it's just another enormous android phone.

    BlackBerry is producing a phone with:

    1) Beastly specs
    2) Have Google Play Services

    Now nobody will have any issue with it except the fact that it still had the logo BlackBerry on it.

    I just hope this pays off, that phone ain't cheap at that scale

    It's kind of sad when Blackberry releases a new phone and not even Crackberry is that excited about it.
