Photos: All hail the upcoming BlackBerry ‘Venice’ slider in it’s full glory!!

Numerous leaks have surfaced on the internet about this upcoming Blackberry Slider. The likes of @evleaks have already revealed lots of teasers for this device, but we’re yet to actually see real images of this device until now. Behold I present to you real life images of the Blackberry Venice!!

Notice the keyboard is very similar to what @evleaks showed us sometime ago. Also notice the Android Lollipop interface.

What we have at the top are two compartments, one for SIM and the other for microSD card.

Rumours also have it that, at first boot, you have the option of picking the OS version you want to download, be it Blackberry 10.3 or Android Lollipop. To change software you would have to run a factory reset and re-download all over again. What do you think?

    One would certainly give it to BlackBerry…. they do try all sorts of things.

    …..you have the option of picking the OS version you want to download, be it Blackberry 10.3 or Android Lollipop. To change software you would have to run a factory reset and re-download all over again.

    Having the ability to decide on two OSes to use and have the best of two worlds is a nice concept. I have always dreamt of the day phones would be generic and not be tied to a particular Operating System, of any least be multi_ boot.

    How about an iPhone running Android? Or, a Samsung Galaxy Note V running Windows_10_Mobile?

    But, come, how many modern phones still have the slider form factor? Hmmm..

      I have always wondered if Apple licensed iOS to other OEM’s, Apple may get beaten at their game of premium feel. just a thought.

    @August, so far the only company that has come close to Apple’s “premium feel” is probably BlackBerry. I can’t see how licensing would have maintained that with anyone else and seeing it hasn’t made much difference to Apple’s fortunes, it’s a moot point.

    The BlackBerry Venice just looks interesting but big. Like many other lovers of BB10, I’m curious as to if it will have any of the goodies of that platform, namely BlackBerry Hub.

    Not a bad move,a new take on Android is highly welcome but knowing Blackberry the phone will cost an arm and a leg..
