The BlackBerry Key2 LE is official, starts at $399

Thursday, August 30th, 2018

Earlier this month, we shared images of TCL's upcoming BlackBerry device, the Key2 LE. It appeared to be a slightly cheaper version of the Key2 that was released earlier this year, and now the phone has been officially announced.

As we suspected, the Key2 LE is a less-expensive version of the Key2 with minor reductions in specifications. It has a Snapdragon 636 instead of a 660, 4GB of RAM instead of 6GB, and a 3,000mAh battery instead of a 3,500mAh unit.

Alcatel 1, the $80 Android Go phone, now available on Amazon

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

If you need a cheap phone, and we're talking really cheap, then I'm sure that you've probably heard about Android Go and the accompanying ultra-budget phones. The Alcatel 1 just went up for sale on Amazon for a measly $79.99, but that low, low price comes at a cost (heh).

As you might recall, our very own Ryne suffered through using the Alcatel 1X not only for our review, but also to see how life with Android Go is.

Exclusive: This is the BlackBerry Key2 LE

Friday, August 10th, 2018

TCL launched the BlackBerry Key2 earlier this year as its second keyboarded phone under the Blackberry brand. This phone made several improvements over the KeyOne with a faster processor, more RAM, a dual camera, and more. However, that also meant a $100 increase in price. If that's too rich for your blood and you absolutely need a physical keyboard, then the rumored Key2 LE is what you want. It's not official, but we've got new details on this upcoming phone.

Palm PVG100 passes through FCC and Wi-Fi Alliance with Android 8.1 Oreo

Monday, August 6th, 2018

Back in March, a trusted source revealed to us that a Palm-branded Android smartphone was slated to launch on Verizon in the second half of 2018. We haven't heard anything since then, but a Palm device with model name 'PVG100' has just rolled through both the FCC and Wi-Fi Alliance.

As is commonplace with these filings, much of the information and all photos are obscured at the request of the manufacturer.

TCL is starting an invitation-only Oreo beta for the KEYone

Friday, July 13th, 2018

The BlackBerry KEYone launched a year ago with Android Nougat, and today it still runs Android Nougat. Oh sure, there have been regular security patches over the months, but the lack of an OS update after more than six months of Oreo availability is embarrassing. TCL is taking the first step toward making the OTA happen, though. There's an Oreo beta for the KEYone, but you need an invite.

If you're still using the KEYone and are itching for Oreo, you can sign up for the new Blackberry beta program hosted by Centercode.

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

BlackBerry used to rule the smartphone market, and well, it doesn't now. However, there are still people who crave the feel of a physical keyboard under their thumbs.

It has a refined keyboard, a dual camera, and it's coming your way later this month.

The KEY2 is debuting with an MSRP of $649, which is $100 more than the KEYOne.

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

BlackBerry teamed up with TCL a while back to produce Android phones, but the first few were just re-branded Alcatel devices. The KeyOne was the first truly "BlackBerry" phone to come out of the partnership, and a sequel is imminent. A teaser video from BlackBerry shows off some bits of the upcoming Key2, including the new dual-camera setup.

The video starts with a slow fade-in on the back of the phone, and there's that dual-camera array.

Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

Last August, a TCL executive confirmed that the company was gearing up to launch Palm-branded smartphones in 2018. Speaking to a trusted source, we've learned that at least one such device will be launching on Verizon in the second half of the year; at least, that's the plan for now. Sadly, we don't know anything about the phone itself at this time (well, we know it runs Android), but the fact that TCL is working with Verizon is telling.
