Wherever you are in the device menu, BlackBerry Flow makes it easy to access all this info with a simple swipe.

The BlackBerry keyboard has been given an update, with the software learning the more you use it. This will help you to write faster, and more accurately, reducing the number of typos.

BlackBerry Balance is designed to offer users the most elegant way of combining work and leisure apps on their handset, keeping personal data separate from work apps. Profiles can be switched with a simple gesture, and info stored on the Work Profile can be encrypted, offering businesses a higher level of security, whilst allowing employees to use work phones for personal use.
