New BlackBerry Venice render shows up: Android Lollipop and curved screen visible
BlackBerry might soon release a high-end Android slider with a curved Quad HD display. Currently known as BlackBerry Venice, the device is expected to be officially introduced in November, with AT&T being one of the carriers to offer it.

Last month, we saw a few images that reportedly showed the Venice running BlackBerry OS 10, and today we can take a look at a new render, this time showing the handset running Android Lollipop.

Posted by @evleaks, the new render reveals the Venice when it's closed (thus without its sliding keyboard out). The handset's display - possibly a 5.4-inch one - is curved on the right and left sides, similar to the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. We can also notice a front-facing speaker, a microUSB port, a 3.5 mm audio jack, and two volume buttons on the right side of the device.

Yesterday, we showed you a render of what could be another one of BlackBerry's upcoming Android smartphones. However, that was likely just a Passport running a modified version of Lollipop.

BlackBerry has yet to confirm that it's planning to release Android smartphones. However, John Chen, the company's CEO, didn't shot down all the rumors about this, saying that BlackBerry would launch an Android smartphone if it could make it "secure enough."

Take a look at the alleged BlackBerry Venice below, and let us know if you like what you're seeing.

Looks like blackberry is expanding into Android territory

What makes you say that? The fact that it's been rumored for weeks, the fact that there is a render of an Android based Blackberry handset right here on this page, or is it the the fact that this entire article is about the stated subject? Well, we all know it's not the last option because your reading comprehension skills are suspect at best. Way to state the obvious, buffoon.

Talk about hitting the nail right on the head! +1 to you, g2.

I don't have to tell you, but the guy is about as dense as a platinum group metal. You could stuff a clue down his throat & he wouldn't have any idea how to find it.

Someone has their panties in a twist.

Looks like you're still in a rut when it comes those comebacks. You've only used that one a thousand times.

30. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Well if the shoe fits

You're not entertaining at all. You're an !Diot. And you're infatuation with alphageek is at an all time high. You really should just tell him about your schoolgirl crush on him.

Why do you care what I say about it if you aren't alphageek? $5 says meanest avoids the question again.

Why does it bother you so much that I'm outing you concerning your affection for alphageek? $5 says Mxy makes up some BS saying he doesn't have feelings for alphageek.

50. g2a5b0e unregistered

I got $5 on it! (too)

I'm surprised you can count past 2.

73. g2a5b0e unregistered

Surprise, surprise!

75. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Surprised you finally reached puberty?

78. g2a5b0e unregistered

Bing, bang, boom, Mxy. You got me there. Gonna head to my room & cry about that one for a while.

81. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Well you're already crying here so it's not going to make a difference.

84. g2a5b0e unregistered

Wah, wah, wah.

67. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I don't care what you say about me. Lol you can call it whatever you want but the fact is you're the alphageek. Only reason I bother mentioning it is you continue to accuse others of making PA accounts. Doesn't help that the stench is the same as the crap you spew.

You don't care what I say about you because what I'm saying is true. You've got a h*** on for another man. Just admit it. You're avatar of an imp infatuated with a male kryptonian is a dead give away. And you spew the same crap as BobbyBuster. Sauce 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and JakeLee, so I guess those are all your banned accounts.

Or maybe they belong to you since you have nothing else going for you except this.

Says the lonely troll.

Is it that time of the month? Is that why you're so salty or are you just being your usual bitter self?

31. g2a5b0e unregistered

I hate to tell you, but your go-to comebacks have lost their bite. That's what happens when you use them almost every single time. You're a broken record of the worst caliber.

No one cares g2a. Take your teenage angst somewhere else

42. g2a5b0e unregistered

Teenage angst. That's cute. Keep your hackneyed phrases right here. Watching you drown is entertaining.
