Smartphone maker BlackBerry Priv, company’s first Android device, goes on sale

Winston Sih | posted Friday, Nov 6th, 2015

TORONTO – The stakes are high for BlackBerry as its first Android-powered device goes on sale today.

The release of the BlackBerry Priv could mark a pivotal moment for the smartphone maker as it tries to turn around its money-losing hardware division.

If the Priv is a sales flop, it’s likely the Waterloo, Ont.-based company will exit the business of designing phones and turn attention to its software licensing and services division.

For the first time, BlackBerry (TSX:BB) is launching a device that will run on Google’s Android system, not on its own operating software.

The change is intended to resolve one of the biggest criticisms levelled against BlackBerry — a lack of apps that left it behind its competitors in an era where customers increasingly use their phones to stream movies and post on social media.

BlackBerry has said advance orders for the Priv have been higher than those for the Passport, Classic and Leap devices, though it hasn’t provided presales figures.

iPhone eating up a lot of data? You may want to turn this feature off

Winston Sih | posted Friday, Oct 2nd, 2015

There’s a new feature in iOS 9 that promises to help supplement slow Wi-Fi connections with fast LTE data, but it may be eating up your data plan quickly.

The feature is called Wi-Fi Assist, and to toggle it on and off, navigate to Settings -> Cellular -> Scroll to the bottom -> Wi-Fi Assist.

To see what apps are consuming your data, go to Settings -> Cellular.
