Appy days might be coming your way if you are the owner of apple device. Especially if you want to try on an adroid wear watch. So better watch carefully now and see what happens. Could this be a sign of a change in times for the two dominating phone platforms.

When news came out that Microsoft was going to be developing Cortana for Android, I was dubious. As in, “So what?” Realistically, I just didn’t see the point. Android has a perfectly good voice assistant in Google Now – to say nothing of how awesome Now on Tap will be – so why should we care about Cortana on Android? It’ll be just another app.
But then news came out more recently thatCortana will be able to replace Google Now as the default search for Android. Whoa. Ok. Now we’re talking.
A month after @evleaks published one press render of BlackBerry's upcoming Android-based smartphone — yes, with a physical keyboard — he's back todaywith several new photos of the device. And there's even a GIF. According to Blass, the BlackBerry Venice is headed for all four major US carriers this November. The previous leaked render didn't offer any look at the device's keyboard, but today that changes.
Judging by the icons seen here, the Venice looks to be running a version of Android that's very close to Google's stock software. That keyboard also looks like a treat, though it also seems somewhat small and cramped thanks to the phone's slider design. But this is BlackBerry we're talking about — a company that's rarely if ever made a terrible keyboard. Both sides of the screen are curved a la the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
Blass also tweeted images that appeared to show another BlackBerry device running Android. The second device doesn't have a slider, looking instead like the company's Passport, a big and square smartphone that would — if the leaks are accurate — now run Google's operating system.
In a series of tweets Monday, the company confirmed the initial market pilot for Project Ara, which was slated to begin in Puerto Rico later this year, will instead be delayed until 2016.
Project Ara began in Google's secretive Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group. The aim is to create an Android-based smartphone platform where nearly every piece of hardware, including the battery, processor and camera, is a separate piece of the handset that can be replaced or customized without upgrading to a completely new device.
Google said the latest plan is to bring its modular smartphones to a "few locations" in the mainland United States for the initial rollout, but did not elaborate on the cause of the delay or the change of location.
A spokesperson for Project Ara confirmed the delay to Mashable, but declined to provide additional details around the updated timeline.
The news comes less than a week after the company confirmed it would "re-route" the planned Puerto Rico pilot to a new location, though the company promised the modular smartphones would eventually make its way to the U.S. territory.
Google previously said it chose Puerto Rico as a test ground for the experimental phones due to the island's "incredibly diverse" population, which is divided almost equally between smartphone users and more basic feature phone users.
The company had planned to make handsets available through the territory's two largest carriers, with a variety of devices sold via food truck-like storefronts.
It's not yet clear how or where Google plans to distribute Project Ara devices during the mainland U.S rollout, but the company says more details about the changes will be coming soon
