Is it about time BlackBerry phones begin running Android?
BB OS 10 has been known to run Android apps for quite some time now that it might come as a surprise for users as soon as the devices begin running the Android operating system itself.
Allegedly, the rumored device is codenamed Venice, which was displayed at MWC. The phone has a top-down slider QWERTY keyboard, according to a picture posted by Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin.
A BlackBerry developer named Nicola D’Amico posted on Twitter a picture of what looks like a QWERTY device running Android. The phone’s model, as what can bee seen in the image, is a Passport SQW-ANDS.
There is a huge chance that the upcoming BB device, if rumors are true, will run on Android Lollipop. Since Android M is coming anytime, perhaps BlackBerry will consider that as well.
