BlackBerry Thursday launched a suite of applications called Blackberry Hub+ aimed at improving productivity and communication on Android’s latest version for smartphones. The Canadian smartphone maker has simplified BlackBerry 10 features through the Mobility Solutions unit, making them accessible on other platforms, specifically Android.
“I’m excited that we’re now able to offer these amazing features to all Android users that demand the most out of their smartphones,” Ralph Pini, Chief Operating Officer of Mobility Solutions said in a statement. The hub allows BlackBerry’s secure communications and productivity features to any Android M consumer, enterprise or government.
Consumers using Android OS can download a 30-day free trail of Blackberry Hub, calendar and password keeper from Google Play. Users can continue using the apps for free with an ad-based experience, or subscribe to the entire suite of apps which will include additional features such as contacts, tasks, device search, notes and launcher.
