Global rollout of BlackBerry 10.3.2.2876 is underway

Global rollout of BlackBerry 10.3.2.2876 is underway
BlackBerry CEO John Chen has said that while no new BlackBerry 10 hardware will be made this year, the software will be receiving updates. With that in mind, BlackBerry 10.3.2.2876 is currently being disseminated to BlackBerry 10 users around the world. According to the manufacturer's own blog, the Hot Fix update includes an update to the Calendar, the removal of the BBM Meetings app, and patches for the Android Player.

Last week, Chen said that BlackBerry 10 was not dead, stressing that it would be receiving various security and privacy enhancements. He also previously noted that the OS would be receiving certain certifications that will allow it to be used by governments and corporations. One that he mentioned was the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP). Operated by the NSA, this is an initiative between the U.S government and IT consumers and producers. Its goal is to "help increase the level of trust consumers have in their information systems and networks through the use of cost-effective security testing, evaluation, and validation programs." The NIAP creates and maintains national and international standards for IT security.

As far as hardware in concerned, BlackBerry is expected to release as many as two new Android powered devices this year. One of them could be the phone code named the BlackBerry Vienna. The unit features a physical QWERTY keyboard and does not appear to offer a premium design like the BlackBerry Priv does.

If you are a BlackBerry 10 owner, before starting the process of downloading and installing the update, make sure that you are on a Wi-Fi network. Additionally, you should have your battery charged to at least 50%.

Nice to see BB10 is still being shown some love. It truly is an amazing OS.

I agree. If it had the app selection that Android and iOS do, it would be the perfect OS.

That's a big ass IF.

No, it's not. BB10 is an extremely capable OS.

What's makes it a big ass if? If developers made apps for it, it would be the perfect OS. It's as simple as that.

Agreed +1.

The apps are a big as IF. IF they had apps. Then yeah. Everyone knows and BB conceded there is no fuel to power up their OS. That is why they went android. No one wants an OS you can't run anything on.

16. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No one is going to go for an OS if it doesn't have a lot of apps. BB10 can offer a lot of productivity features, but it won't matter if your app store doesn't have a wide selection of apps.

It's already proven that Android apps can run on BB10, so all developers needed to do is make a port and send it to the BB App World. It's the developers fault, not BB's.

Spoken like someone who doesn't know what they're talking about. You can run Android apps(and possibly iOS apps)on BB10 being that it is QNX.

And you're a big ass troll.

I totally agree.

I truly wish that BB10 had more share than what it has today :(. I just don't like seeing android with 80%

5. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Android is on a lot of devices not limited to just phones and tablets. Blackberry doesn't have the same versatility as ios and Android does.

Versatility in terms of what? BB10 is more versatile than iOS. In some aspects, BB10 is as versatile as Android, due to its core being QNX.

10. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Calm down, I think you're overreacting slightly with my comment. As for being more versatile than ios well BB10 is a productivity based OS. Not to say ios isn't capable of productivity but BB10 doesn't have the reach Android and ios does. That's what I meant by the comment you're putting too much thought into.

It's funny how you ASSUME that I'm "overreacting" because I questioned what you said. I think you need to take your own advice and calm down since you're making such an assumption. As for you thinking I'm "putting too much thought" into your comment, I think it's more like you're not putting ENOUGH thought into your comment. Exactly how doesn't BB10 have the reach that iOS and Android have? What are you basing this blatantly false claim on? And I say "blatantly false" because if you had knowledge of BB10 and its QNX core, you'd know that your claim is false.

"Exactly how doesn't BB10 have the reach that iOS and Android have?" The customer reach. For starters.

15. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Thank you. That's exactly the reason why.

He clearly wasn't referring to customer reach, or he would have said so in the first place. As far as capabilities go, BB10 has the potential to do more. You can run other OS's on top of BB10. You can't say the same for Android or iOS.

24. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Or maybe you should stop trying to expect people to say what you want them to say just because you are incapable of being open minded.

26. meanestgenius

Posts: 21784; Member since: May 28, 2014

Even better, maybe YOU should learn not to be so bum-burned because I questioned your post, and be more open-minded to the fact that you WILL be questioned in a public forum if someone doesn't agree with your post.

28. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I don't care about you questioning my post here or in any article I comment in. What I am trying to get through to that thick skull of yours is don't throw a hissy fit just because I respond in the appropriate manner.

31. meanestgenius

Posts: 21784; Member since: May 28, 2014

I don't care if you think I'm throwing a "hissy fit" because I question your posts and make you look stupid in the process. Don't act so bum-burned over it.

34. Mxyzptlk unregistered

The only person you make look stupid is yourself. You questioned my comment simply because you got butthurt when I said BB10 isn't as versatile as iOS and Android. Get over it. You're putting too much thought into a comment that wasn't that big of a deal.

36. meanestgenius

Posts: 21784; Member since: May 28, 2014

Get real. I made you look stupid because I exposed your lack of knowledge of BB10. When you had no real comeback, you backtracked and piggybacked off of someone else's comment. BB10 is every bit as versatile as Android in many cases and moreso than iOS in every way. YOU got all bum-burned because I exposed your inadequacies. Deal with it. Next time, do more research before commenting to save yourself from a soar bum and having to waste time using aloe to heal it.

38. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You call yourself meanestgenius, yet you are STILL having trouble comprehending what I said. Don't blame me for your lack of understanding something simple. I didn't piggyback off anything. You're just clueless. Next time save yourself from embarrassment and actually read the comments thoroughly. I'm pretty sure even you can understand it eventually.

Well, calling yourself Mxyzptlk is quite apt, considering that you're a miserable little troll. Now stop lying and trying to deflect from the fact that you were piggybacking due to you being embarrassed by me when I called you out. If you don't like being embarrased, then stop speaking from a place of ignorance.

43. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You were clueless, just admit it. There's no shame in admitting defeat to your superior. Stop embarrassing yourself.

You're an idiot. Just admit it. There's no shame in admitting that you don't know anything except how to be an idiot. But do keep embarrassing yourself.
