Android-based BlackBerry Venice to be launched by T-Mobile
BlackBerry Venice is the codename of an unannounced smartphone that should be one of BlackBerry's first devices to run Android. Not long ago, we heard that the Venice should be available at some point via AT&T. Now, @evleaks has it that the new handset is also going to be sold by T-Mobile (though there's no word on exactly when this should happen).

According to previous rumors, BlackBerry is planning to announce the Venice in November. We've already seen renders reportedly showing the new handset, and you can check them out for yourself in the slideshow below.

The BlackBerry Venice is supposed to be a high-end slider with a full QWERTY keyboard, and a 5.4-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display that seems to be slightly curved at the edges - similar to the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Other features might include a six-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, a 18 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front-facing camera, and 3 GB of RAM.

What do you think of the BlackBerry Venice thus far? Can it stand next to other high-end Android phones?
