BlackBerry's Hub+ service is coming to Android Lollipop phones

Just over a month ago, BlackBerry launched its BlackBerry® Hub+ for Android service to let Marshmallow users enjoy BlackBerry's security and productivity features without having to buy a BlackBerry phone.

BlackBerry® Hub+ for Android is now available for all Android phones running Android 5.0 Lollipop and later versions.

Among the services that the BlackBerry® Hub+ for Android will bring to you is the Hub itself which will let you compose emails and posts on social media, respond to messages, select email recipients from phone contacts, manage your folders and search for contacts, messages and emails effortlessly. The service will also include a Calendar, a password keeper, a place to save all your contacts, a task manager, a device search mechanism to search for emails, contacts, messages or songs, a Note keeper and a BlackBerry launcher to let you organise apps, widgets and shortcuts.

Everything BlackBerry on Android! We'll have that!

You will now be able to download a free trial version of BlackBerry® Hub+ for Android on the Google Play Store if your phone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop OS. The app will be available to use for free for 30 days, post which you can continue to use it with ad support forever or purchase the ad-free version for just 99 cents a month. Even though it will take up a bit of storage on your handset, the Hub will let you communicate effortlessly using a range of applications on offer from BlackBerry.

While the Hub+ service is a great way to manage your productivity and ensure your device' security, if you're interested in BlackBerry's services, nothing can be better than going for a full-blooded BlackBerry phone running stock Android OS and BlackBerry's Full Enterprise Mobility Management Support. BlackBerry's flagship phone, the PRIV, recently saw a £100 cut in its price and is now available at £449.

The PRIV comes with a 5.4-inch Quad HD Plastic AMOLED display, a slide-out physical keyboard along with a virtual one if you don't like using it too much, an extremely grip-able membrane like woven material on its back, Android Lollipop OS along with a few pre-installed BlackBerry apps like BlackBerry Hub, BBM and DTEK security, an 18-MP rear camera with OIS, Phase Detect Auto Focus (PDAF), Fast focus lock, HDR, 6-element f2.2 lens and Back Side Illumination (BSI2) Stacked Sensor.

BlackBerry also launched the DTEK50 recently, a £275 phone featuring the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and the proprietary BlackBerry 10 security system. The phone comes with added protection against malicious apps, scareware notifications and insecure Wi-Fi connections. The device will also feature Full Enterprise Mobility Management Support along with Android™ for Work and Google Play™ for Work services. Apart from Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, you will also find a range of BlackBerry services in the DTEK50 like BlackBerry Intelligent Keyboard, BlackBerry Hub and a Customizable BlackBerry Convenience Key.
