  • BlackBerry: A New 'Mainstream' Phone And A Partner In PayPal  [View article]
    It would also seem that PayPal's API is only for receiving payments and not person-to-person payments.

    "Also, Apple Pay is used in stores to pay for goods, easily daily."

    I can buy stuff using PayPal at Home Depot. Things much larger than an iGadget.

    @David653 the question was whether this was unique to BBM or if any other messaging service provided the feature.

    It would seem that it is currently unique to BBM.

    Except for that the Mobile Payment API is for accepting payments as a authorized PayPal merchant, not person-to-person payments.

    Skype has some sort of PayPal payment thing. Initially it was for adding Skype credits. I didn't see anything in my quick search to see if it was available for mobile person-to-person payments. http://bit.ly/1WHIf60

    Facebook messenger has a person-to-person payment, but it is only with Visa and Master Card. http://tcrn.ch/1WHIcXS

    SnapChat also has a person-to-person payment with Visa or Master Card. No debit card, which is good, since SnapChat is horrible at security. http://bit.ly/1WHIcXU

    WhatsApp allows a friend to pay your payment for you, it doesn't look like there is a person-to-person payment method.

    Google Hangouts doesn't seem to have any payment methods.

    Line and WeChat also do not have a person-to-person payments, as far as my quick search could find.

  • BlackBerry's Venice Android phone reportedly launching in November  [View news story]
    @KIA
    "IMO, and if my supposition is correct; BlackBerry + Google Play would be abhorrent to the security minded as it flies in the face of BlackBerry's whole 'security/privacy' story."

    It would seem that it would fly in the face of everything BlackBerry stands for.

    The rumor is, "Google for Work" is the collaboration between Google and BlackBerry and the Google "Play Store for Work" is the end result. You have the Google access with the BlackBerry wrapper for security.

    I'll believe that when it is released in November and someone shows a demo.

    No, you are not right.
    Why would BlackBerry give up BBM when they keep adding revenue streams to it and have made it work on all mobile devices?

    I own a Passport and had a Z30. Skype does not come preloaded.

    "posted new pictures of the phone" mock ups

    Even if it were Android on a BlackBerry phone, there would be an icon for BBM and not Skype.

    @KIA,
    I thought you were some sort of engineer.
    Since when is an intangible thing, such as "Desirability", considered a feature?

    As far as the apps, there are no apps offered to iOS and Android that couldn't be done for BlackBerry. It is up to the app maker/data owner to provide them.

    "That would be incorrect.

    The pilot was launched Feb 2013 - that's 2 1/2 years ago."

    I'm glad you figured out how to use the search. I stand corrected.


    I was apparently going off last years announcement that they were increasing the features and rolling out to other BBM enabled devices.

    "So a link to a Blackberry blog and a link that doesn't open.
    OK, thats solid."

    Try again or use Google "PayPal BlackBerry BBM".
    Click on the links.
    Scroll down.

    It hasn't rolled out world wide yet. Why make a global announcement when it is only available in Canada?

    You should see my tweets to BlackBerry on IoT wearables.

    I don't believe BlackBerry should just focus on BES being the network security for IoT, I believe that they should acquire some startup wearables companies and provide a full body monitoring setup. From watches, rings, bracelets and sew-ins to smart clothes, smart socks, shoe inserts and other things. I haven't had the time to write more articles about it, but I wrote ones on some of the possible acquisition/partnership suggestions.

    @bwsf

    What are the features?

    Instead of making empty remarks, why don't you actually contribute to the discussion. If you believe there are features missing from today's BlackBerry phones, please list them.

    @Ftech there would seem to be a few that even after thousands of posts haven't contributed anything to the discussion.

    I would also like to know which features BlackBerry users are missing/desiring that iOS and Android have had for years. I don't consider apps features.

    The only feature I can think of is finger print security, which has been found to be insecure. BlackBerry's image lock is hard enough that I pointed my phone at people, locked my phone and asked them if they could unlock it. After 2 demonstrations, nobody wanted to attempt it.
