    Three hours and the Shogun hasn’t appeared with his Banzai charge at BB yet?? 😛

    • Can’t Fix Stupid

      Maybe he got hacked?

    And yet many put Blackberry down yet even Google agreed that the Priv is the most secure device out there. I am proud that Google showed this. Maybe now some can actually believe it but hey, they all have their own opinions.

    Also when did Samsung and LG send out the updates? Lol the carriers barely release them as is.

    • But it does not matter because Android, even with BlackBerry is still more insecure than iOS.
      We’re starting to use iPhone in the Ontario Public Service, and Android, even with BlackBerry, are nowhere to be found.

      Pretty sad!

      More insecure than iOS? gee I guess all the iOS hacks recently are false? the Cia openingly hacks iPhones all the time, theres a reason why top execs and governments use secure Blackberries, get your facts straight

    • Vish

      Those were older iOS versions – think iOS 7.x

      Well even Bla1ze pointed out there was an original version that did NOT include the Priv for some reason. And both DTEKs are still not on the list.

    I love my DTEK60, but I’m still waiting for the Nougat update 🙁 🙁 >:(

    • Ken Aisin

      I love my Priv. Also waiting for the Nougat update too.

    • ToniCipriani ✓pǝᴉɟᴉɹǝʌ

      Until BlackBerry stands behind their current phones and actually update them to Nougat, the KEYone’s “software” and “secure” promise rings hollow.

    • TheCuddlyKoala

      They got your money, you’ll never see an update..

    • Ken Aisin

      That’s fine. I still love the phone though.

    • TheCuddlyKoala

      They got your money, you’ll never see an update.

    Most secure because no one bought it? Sorry couldn’t resist 🙂

    I have 2 Detek 60’s, 2 Detek 50’S AND 2 Priv’s … the Detek60 is the clear winner phone wise, But I agree PRIV is more secure.

    • TheCuddlyKoala

    • An octopus has ears?

    • Magic18

      Yes… 8 of them…

  • Lil’ Sooky Denton

    Lol! And also in the news; ‘The CEO of Tata automobiles says Tata vehicles are the safest on the roads…’

  • TheCuddlyKoala

    Until Chen hands over your “privacy” to authorities…..

    • 2112

      Heck iPhones are just plain hackable period ask the CIA…or a 5 year old

    • Lil’ Sooky Denton

    • Lil’ Sooky Denton

    If they remade this thing with the SD820, all the short comings fixed and <$700 CAN
    It would sell like hotcakes.

    I am user of Priv for 2 years now, previously Galaxy Note, Sony and Moto phones. Verdict: very very happy with Priv. High performance in all respects. Absolutely trust it. With today’s lower price, an amazing bargain for such a premium device. But what do I yearn for? Well, there is always something…

    I love to have a bigger, wider physical keyboard. Yes, BB, its the keyboard thing again. I want more …

    So happy BB remains in the mobile phone business. But what could a Priv Mark 2 be? Here’s a few suggestions:
    – Keep the format, the slider so that the OLED big screen stay
    – Wider and generally bigger physical keyboard. Love to see a numeric row, if this can be done. If screen size have to slightly smaller to get a bigger keyboard, so be it.
    – Dual front loudspeakers.
    – Removable battery. Allow extended off-grid or cold weather usage with multiple battery packs. This is an engineering challenge but the designers are up to it.
    – Shorten boot time.
    – Wireless charging for all models. Two USB ports (any type). But why? One for charging and one for data connection to USB devices that do not provide power, but drain considerable power instead.
    – General hardware update
    – Stainless steel construction. OK is this a joke and an wild crazy dream.

    This class action lawsuit is highly dubious and chance of a win slim. That’s because there is no termination (means loss of job) when there is a transfer to another company. Employees signed off on the transfer terms. Those who refused the transfer got proper termination benefits. You can’t have it both ways – transfer and termination benefits. I am just an outsider but one who experienced exactly the same thing with a Cdn company – offer of transfer or terminate.
