BlackBerry hasn’t been doing too well in the device game. Once a strong platform made popular by its secure messaging service, BlackBerry now has a market share of less than 1%. While they are still introducing new BlackBerry devices like the Passport, Classic and Leap, they are still far from becoming mainstream.
According to a couple of sources, word has it that BlackBerry could be making an Android based device. Whether they would abandon its current BlackBerry 10 devices isn’t really clear but we reckon it is unlikely at this point of time. This comes at a time where BlackBerry is now focused towards enterprise solutions especially its device management platform that works across various mobile OS including Android, iOS and Windows.
If BlackBerry is releasing an Android device, it may be a slider device that comes with a QWERTY keyboard like the BlackBerry Torch series. This would offer a familiar full touch screen display, bundled with a tactile feeling of BlackBerry’s signature keyboard. The slider phone was speculated a couple months back and it could feature a dual curved display similar to the Galaxy S6 edge.
Would you buy a BlackBerry if it runs on Android OS with a QWERTY keyboard?
Sony Mobile has launched 3 new devices for the Malaysian market which consists of 2 phones – the selfie-centric Xperia C4 Dual and a mid-range waterproof Xperia M4 Aqua Dual smart phone. The Xperia M4 Aqua will be available starting next week at RM969 while the Xperia C4 Dual will be released in July with pricing to be advised later. Also announced for Malaysia is their Xperia Z4 flagship tablet which runs on the top of the line Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. The Xperia Z4 Tablet with 4G LTE connectivity is priced at RM2,699 and RM3,199 with its accompanying bluetooth keyboard.
The Xperia Z4 Tablet and Xperia M4 Aqua are water and dust resistant with the highest IP68 rating. This allows it to be submerged in water up to 1.5 deep and up to 30 minutes. Being the latest waterproof devices from Sony, both devices come with a cap-less micro USB port design for a hassle free charging experience.
You know selfies are important when smart phone brands make narcissist-focused devices like the Sony Xperia C4 and ASUS Zenfone Selfie. Now it appears that Apple could be jumping onto the selfie bandwagon as well for its upcoming iPhone that’s expected to launch by end of this year.
In the new Apple iOS 9 developer preview, there’s a code that suggests support for Full HD FaceTime and high 240fps frame rate video recording as well. The biggest surprise is having to support a flash for its front facing camera. This opens up a possibility that the new iPhones may come with a front facing flash which offers better lit selfies in the dark. At the moment, most of its flagship rivals like the Galaxy S6 are boasting better low light shots with the use of faster f/1.9 lens.
For the upcoming iPhone, Apple is expected to make a jump to 12MP for its main camera. They have been sticking to having just 8MP since 2011 with its iPhone 4S to the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. For the front camera, they could be bumping its 1.2MP shooter to something higher, since most flagships are sporting at least 5MP these days.
If you take lots of selfies, is having a front flash a big deal to you?

As promised previously, HTC is rolling out fix to improve the camera performance of its One M9 flagship. The One M9 was launched with a larger 20MP shooter but it pales in comparison to other flagships like the Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 that uses a lower pixel count camera.
With the new software update carrying the version 1.40.401.5 (still based on Android 5.0.2), it has a greater auto-exposure balance to improve overexposure and it also claims to have reduce noise and blur levels in low light conditions. Photos should get true to life colours as the update reduces the yellow and green hues that were apparent in extreme lighting conditions.
