BlackBerry's Rumored A10 Is a Departure, At Least

Adam Clark Estes, Gawker Media

While me and you and everyone we know weren't paying attention, BlackBerry invented a nice big shiny new phone, the A10. It's definitely different! And at this point, that might be just what BlackBerry needs.

There aren't many details available from the video other than that the A10 is a decidedly bigger phone than the Z10; for specs, we have to look to a previous report that indicated a 5-inch, 720p display. That's not great for a flagship these days, but if BlackBerry can make the A10 affordable and powerful under the hood, it's still at least got a shot to get some notice. At least, one hopes so. The company may only have so many rounds of ammo left. [Verge]

Busy July

The second half of every year is usually not considered to be very busy as far as smartphone announcements are concerned, but that notion is quickly changing. Apple’s iPhones and the Samsung Galaxy Note range were the only notable flagship offerings that would break cover during the second half of the year, but from this year we have the OnePlus 2, while Motorola also releases its flagships in the second half of the year. This month in particular has been very busy with the arrival of the OnePlus 2, the Moto X Style, Moto X Play and the Moto G. Regional player YU also released the Yureka Plus this month, so we have seen a myriad of handsets in July. At the same time, we have also seen some existing handsets making the headlines this month for the wrong reasons, so we have a look at them all.
