One of the things I complained about the most in my review of the Blackberry PRIV was the fact that it made no sense that a flagship phone was still running Android 5.1.1 up to 5 months after 6.0 was released and after Android N was announced.

Well, it seems like the update gods have finally smiled on Blackberry. A video that surfaced on YouTube just a few days ago shows what I assume to be a review unit running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. (I love the music in this video, by the way)

This is a step in the right direction for Blackberry, because Android OEMs are notorious for starving their phones of updates. Fun fact of the day: we are preparing for an Android N (please let N = Nutella) release, and only 2.3% of Android devices are running 6.0 Marshmallow. I’m willing to bet my kidneys that most of those devices are Google Nexuses that came with 6.0 in the first place. Sigh.
