Apart from making core changes to Android OS for the PRIV, BlackBerry also made tons of apps to replicate its BlackBerry 10’s productivity tools. These apps, which includes BlackBerry Hub, Password Keeper, BlackBerry Keyboard etc. are now available on Google Play Store. However, it will remain exclusive to BlackBerry PRIV and can’t be loaded to any other Android smartphone.
Being settled as apps is a good thing for frequent updates and to stay independent from a complete OS update. BlackBerry will certainly add more to PRIV eventually once it’s rolled out to public.
However, these apps may get a price tag and be available for other phones as a part of BlackBerry Experience Suite announced earlier this year.
BlackBerry PRIV is said to launch next week.
