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.

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.

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.

The Alcatel 1X with Android Go is coming to the US for under $100

Friday, March 16th, 2018

It's been almost a year since Google unveiled Android Go, now technically known as Android Oreo (Go Edition), but devices you can actually buy are few and far between. In fact, only ZTE has committed to launching a Go device in the US. Now, Alcatel is announcing plans to launch the X1 in the US, too. The phone was shown off at MWC a few weeks ago. The specs are modest, but it'll cost under $100.

Friday, January 12th, 2018

CES is wrapping up (I left Thursday afternoon), so we figured it would be a good time to sit down and give all of you an easy place to find a bunch of the stuff announced that are related to Android. This post will focus on all of the television sets that will come with Android TV installed. I got see a few of them on the show floor, but they weren't all that exciting from a brief glance standpoint — we've all seen TVs and most of us know what Android TV looks like by now.

Monday, October 9th, 2017

The leaks for BlackBerry's next fullscreen smartphone have been going for a few months. What was first known as the BlackBerry Krypton then referred to as the Motion is now official under the latter name.
