What's This?

Blackberry has always allowed Android apps on its operating system. But now, news of Blackberry switching to Android and modifying this operating system to allow features of BB10 on its devices have been doing a round quite some time now.


Yesterday, news say that Blackberry’s upcoming smartphone Venice would be running on Android, and today the video has been released where Blackberry Passport is shown running on Android Lollipop.

Let’s have a look at the video first:

Why is Blackberry switching to Android?

Blackberry has enjoyed its days of fame, but the brand has also seen a downfall. And we all know that today either Android works or iOS. To claim the fame back, the company has no other option than to adopt the new technology. Blackberry can no longer afford to lag behind.

Besides bringing Android to BB, the company is also increasing the screen size which is just another way to boost sales.

Will Android really help Blackberry?

Blackberry was loved because it was good. Just like iPhone, Blackberry was once considered a status symbol. The devices were much needed in the corporate world. And we know that the corporate world does not go crazy over cheap things. The product has to be excellent.

The company’s sales dropped because it did not change itself as per the need of the time. Where other companies tried to fit in every need of the customer in one device – from features to design, Blackberry stayed stubborn. Now as the company has finally learned its lesson from the failure, nothing can stop it from achieving success again. Still, we should wait till the products actually hit the market.
