BlackBerry’s upcoming Blackberry Venice Android smartphone that’s reportedly designed with a slider physical keyboard.
It’s everything you’ve ever dreamed, and probably even a bit more. As you can see on the picture, it runs stock Android. BlackBerry opted for a more traditional 16:9 display instead of its tiny square-ish displays as well.
As you can see the picture, BlackBerry Venice Android is awesome and have all android and blackberry branded features.
BlackBerry Venice Android Phone!!
BlackBerry is dead! Many industry analysts keep echoing the prescript, but the Canadian company isn’t giving up at this the time, just when they initiated a restructuring plan that would return the company to profitability.
It have a slider keyboard that you can use when you desire. And slide out and then after use slide in back.
So what’s BlackBerry’s solution to make this device fit in your pocket? A slider! It’s 2005 all over again. Sliders are great.
Except that they break, make phones less durable, add weight and thickness and are inconvenient. And given the tall form factor, it will probably be very uncomfortable to type on this thing as the display will feel heavy.

BlackBerry Venice Android Phone will reportedly run Android 5.1 Lollipop right-out-of-the-box. It is also said that BlackBerry could replace some Google services with its own.
Android is a much needed improvement as developers have abandoned BlackBerry’s operating system years ago.
But BlackBerry can’t just become yet another Android OEM all of them are already suffering from too much competition.
That’s why adding a keyboard makes sense, in some way. I’m just not sure about the execution. But this FrankenBlackBerry might be too little, too late anyway.
