BlackBerry Venice, Android in tow, reportedly coming to AT&T


BlackBerry is going downhill fast, with dropping market share and people losing interest. Honestly, when was the last time you remembered BlackBerry even exists? But all hope is not lost, as the company is dropping its own operating system for one device, and adopting our own Android OS. And if the rumors are true, it’s coming to AT&T.

The BlackBerry Venice is rumored to feature a 5.4-inch quad HD display that slides up to reveal a keyboard, a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, an 18MP rear camera, and a 5MP front camera. It really sounds pretty solid as an Android device, and as long as the skin isn’t too heavy, it might attract some people. The physical keyboard may have died, but there are still people longing for one.

Would you buy the BlackBerry Venice powered by Android? Or is BlackBerry doomed to fail? Let us know in the comments!
