CES 2018 wrap-up: More Android TVs than you can shake a remote at

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.

TCL previews the new Alcatel series 1, 3, and 5

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

TCL briefly showed off its new line of Alcatel devices at CES. Simply named the 1-, 3-, and 5-series, each product line constitutes a portfolio that brings fingerprint sensors, 18:9 displays, and "flagship design" to devices that hit three distinct price points.

Starting things off, the 1-series is the truly budget-friendly of the bunch. While further details and specs are unknown at this time, we do know that the 1-series will be priced under $100 with a fingerprint sensor and 18:9 display.

BlackBerry unveils the fullscreen Motion with IP67 rating and 4000mAh battery

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. The phone is still manufactured by TCL, but unlike its predecessor, the KEYone, it doesn't sport a full QWERTY keyboard but goes with the more predominant full touchscreen form factor.

As leaked earlier, the Motion has a 5.5" 1080p display, a Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, what seems to be 32GB of storage, Dual SIM support, an 8MP front camera and a 12MP rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture.

This is the BlackBerry Motion, an upcoming Android phone with no keyboard in sight

Friday, October 6th, 2017

Since BlackBerry got out of the hardware game, and TCL started building phones for the company previously known for its physical keyboard-toting business phones, we've seen a couple of new BlackBerry-branded devices. There was the modest Aurora (sans keyboard), specifically for the Indonesian market, and then there was the flagship KEYone, which was supposed to invoke memories of BlackBerry roots with its physical keyboard. It did so, to some extent, even if it was underwhelming in certain areas.

Palm brand will return in 2018, with devices built by TCL

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

Palm's early smartphones and PDAs were a staple of the late 90s and early 00's. After the release of Apple's iPhone in 2007 and Android in 2008, Palm began selling smartphones with its new webOS operating system. The company was purchased by HP in 2010, but after poor sales, HP discontinued webOS and all Palm products in 2011.

TCL acquired the rights to the Palm brand from HP in 2011, and promised to "re-create a new company in Silcon Valley" to develop new Palm devices.

BlackBerry may start licensing its Android ROM, called ‘BlackBerry Secure’

Friday, August 25th, 2017

BlackBerry has always placed a high priority on the needs of businesses, especially when it comes to security. All of the company's Android phones come with the 'DTEK' security suite, and BlackBerry has done a pretty good job of pushing out Google's monthly security patches. Now, BlackBerry may be looking to license its secure version of Android to other companies.

According to a report from The Economic Times, BlackBerry is calling its version of Android "BlackBerry Secure," and it includes all the security features currently shipping on its Android devices.

[Deal Alert] Alcatel Idol 5S on sale for $217.19 ($62.80 off) via Amazon

Monday, August 21st, 2017

TCL is busy building phones for Blackberry these days, but it's not giving up on the Alcatel brand. The Idol 5S is a much more compelling phone than the very overpriced Idol 4S was, and there's a cheaper Amazon Prime edition if you don't mind some ads. However, the ad-free Idol 5S is on sale today for almost the same price. It's more than $60 off at $217.19, and the Prime version is $200.

Sprint will be the first carrier in the U.S. to get BlackBerry’s KEYone, available starting tomorrow

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

BlackBerry's KEYone officially launched in Canada a couple of months ago. At the original announcement, TCL (who licenses the BB name) said that the U.S. would be getting its own versions of the anachronistic phone in the months to follow. Starting tomorrow, new and current Sprint customers will be the first to pick up the KEYone here in America.

Besides just the ridiculous stylization of its name, the KEYone features a 4.5" IPS LCD 1650 x 1080 display, a Snapdragon 625 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 12MP/5MP cameras, a huge 3,505mAh battery, and the latest security patches on top of Nougat.

TCL announces the launch date for the BlackBerry KEYone, physical keyboard and all

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

We first saw the BlackBerry KEYone back at MWC in all of its QWERTY candybar glory. Running Nougat, it hearkens back to the heyday of Research in Motion, the Canadian firm behind the iconic phones. TCL is actually the manufacturer behind this somewhat anachronistic device. And if you're one of those people who judges phones based solely on the spec sheet, then you may not be impressed with this one.

CPU Snapdragon 625
GPU Adreno 506

Measurements 149.3 x 72.5 x 9.4 mm; 180 g

Besides just the annoying stylization — they should have stuck with the "Mercury" codename — the KEYone features a 35-key backlit keyboard with capacitive touch for swiping gestures.
