Check out the BlackBerry Venice starring in a new video
We can see that like the QWERTY on the BlackBerry Passport, users will be able to scroll what is on the screen by moving their finger up or down on the QWERTY keys. The Venice also appears to offer a "double tap to wake" feature. And as we pointed out the other day, sliding up from the bottom of the screen offers you three choices. We can now clearly see that you can select from BlackBerry Hub, Google services and a universal search which will allow you to rummage through the web and your phone. A microSD slot is placed on top of the handset, so it looks like there will be expandable memory offered.
There is a sizable speaker grill on the bottom of the unit, although that doesn't mean that the actual speaker is that large. The power button and volume rocker are on the right side, along with the BlackBerry Convenience Key that usually comes out of the box as a button to open the camera, but can be programmed to handle other functions.
So far, there is no word from BlackBerry as to when the Venice will be unveiled. There is speculation that the handset will be available in November from all four major U.S. carriers. Looks like you'll be able to tell your significant other exactly what you want for Chanukah or Christmas this year.
