The future of BlackBerry 10 doesn’t seem to be a long lived one. While the Priv was getting launched in India last week, BlackBerry’s senior director of Asia Pacific productmanagement made some interesting comments. Damian Tay said that as the company makes Android secure, it wouldn’t make sense to offer two such platforms. As a result, he says that in the future, BlackBerry “may have only Android as a platform.”
According to Chen, the updates that BlackBerry 10 will receive this year will make the OS more secure for business and government use. The upcoming 10.3.3 update will allow BB10 to be NIAP certified. This means that the platform “will have passed the strictestgovernment-grade security tests.” Later this year, the platform will be updated to version 10.3.4 with even more security updates.
Thanks for the tip!
