Is there a good alternative to Blackberry?

Episode 1368

James from Laguna Beach, CA

James loved his Blackberry Z10. Leo says that the Blackberry OS was great for it's time but its time to move to Android because they didn't have the resources to develop separate apps for such a limited market. In the end, it's really down to iOS and Android. The Blackberry Priv was a good Android device with a physical keyboard. The recently announced KeyONE is Blackberry's latest handset but it's not an improvement in the keyboard department.

BlackBerry Priv

Episode 1247

Leo got the BlackBerry Priv this week, which he says has to be the worst name for a phone ever. It's supposed to mean "Privileged" and "Private." Leo says that since BlackBerry has dropped their own OS in favor of Android, that the Priv is a very good mobile phone. There are some old things that make it a BlackBerry, like the physical keyboard. It brought back memories, but Leo says it was a difficult experience to use to type, leaving Leo to think that this kind of design is an anachronism. It's a feature whose time is over, and we've moved on.
