Blackberry’s Shot at Redemption and iPhone 6s Expectations

Blackberry Folds

At Mobile World Congress this year, Blackberry showed off it’s first ‘Blackberry 10 Slider’ device, codenamed ‘Venice.’ According to N4BB, The Blackberry ‘Venice’ slider specs are:

  • 4-inch Quad-HD display
  • 18 MP rear-camera
  • 5 MP front-camera
  • 8 GHz Hexa-core (Snapdragon 808 chipset) 64-bit
  • 3 GB RAM

The kicker is that it will be running Google’s Android operating system. Even Blass, currently a freelance editorialist at Mashable first tweeted a tantalizing picture of the lower part of a never before seen Blackberry device that sports a QWERTY keyboard. He later retracted from that image, and posted this one.

This device is certainly eye-catching. Additional corrections were that it should be expected to launch in November. Blackberry has struggled against Android and iOS, mostly because of a lack of useful apps. It now commands a sad 1% of the mobile OS market, behind Windows Phone!

iPhone 6s- What can we Expect?

I will not be talking about the iPhone 7 because that is still too far way to be of concern. What will be coming soon is the iPhone 6s, if Apple continues its current cycle of every other release. MacRumors has posted a page dedicated posting what we know so far and what we can expect from the new device. As expected, we can anticipate that a new device will launch in the fall, just in time for the holiday shopping season. A summary of features include:

  • Expect screen sizes to remain the same
  • Possibly a new ‘rose gold’ iPhone option
  • Possibly stronger aluminum to avaid another ‘bendgate’
  • Force Touch technology (available on the new line of Mac Book Pro’s
  • 12 MP camera
  • ne microphone will be added near the speaker to enhance voice quality;
  • A9 processor upgraded with 2GB LPDDR4
  • Improved recognition rate of Touch ID to promote Apple Pay;
  • Gesture control support

These are welcomed upgrades, and I can’t wait to find out if they are true, or not.

Please remember to leave me your comments and follow me @delrealest on Twitter! I look forward to what you all have to say.
