2016 has passed and now 2017 is here. So quickly has one year passed us yet again and so many changes has happened in the past year. In the past year, BlackBerry officially started a full focus on the secure Android, with BlackBerry Priv, DTEK50 and DTEK60, with the two DTEK’s made by their new official manufacturing partner – TCL. In addition, late towards the end of the year, we saw the roll-out of the OS 10.3.3 update to BlackBerry 10 devices and also saw Facebook withdrawing their apps from the BlackBerry-legacy and BlackBerry 10 platform. With this upcoming new year, we expect to see the BlackBerry Mercury which is the next BlackBerry device with a QWERTY keyboard and more BlackBerry branded android devices to hit the market.
