    BlackBerry finally moving to a services company and have made BB Hub officially available to install on all devices alongside BB calendar and Password Keeper.

    Launcher / Notes / Tasks will be available soon.

    Installed on my HTC 10 and working perfectly.

    The catch is eventually they will charge for the apps at $0.99 per month for the entire suite. But that's still cheaper than buying a BB Priv ;)

    My understanding is that you cannot use the Blackberry keyboard, though. Do you know if I'm right about that, MRU?

    Yes it's not available at the moment directly.

    It will hopefully make the transition especially when they introduce the subscription charge.

    Hub is working fantastically though :). It's a very positive step.

    Works fantastically with .mac / .me / .icloud accounts in that it supports PUSH whereas most email clients on Android do not (just fetch).

    I've replaced my Gmail app with HUB :)

    Installed. it's nice to experience a bit of BlackBerry on my phone. I wish there was better integration of text messages and social apps.

    Hopefully it improves and if they can get it on more devices by opening it up to all android devices and hopefully an iOS port too, and make an API available to others it will work better.

    At the moment Twitter / Facebook / Instagram essentially just give you your notifications and allow you to create new status posts and text messaging just launches the stock text messaging application.

    It will be interesting to see if greater interaction is available once BB launcher and other apps are also added.
