Poll results: Would you get a new BlackBerry if it ran Android?
For the most parts, emulating Android apps hasn't been a seamless experience on BB10, so having a full-fledged Android device might return the spotlight on BlackBerry again. Yesterday, a picture by a BlackBerry developer leaked out, allegedly showing a BlackBerry Passport running an Android build. The phone's model is denoted as BlackBerry Passport SQW-ANDS, with the last letters apparently indicating an Android version of the handset.
Where there's smoke, there could be fire as well, that is why we asked you last week whether you would be interested to get a new BlackBerry handset if it ran Android. After all, the rumors are for flagship specs like a QHD display, and a Snapdragon 808 chipset, which might be one more thing to tip the scale for a switch. Surprisingly enough, more than two thirds of our respondents are willing to give BlackBerry the benefit of the doubt, with just a third categorically saying no to the premise.
