BlackBerry might, or might not, be working on an Android-powered phone. However, a recent report hints that it might, and that we should not rule out that possibility at all. Now there’s an interesting bit that is related to the story; remember Eldar Murtazin? The Russian leakster has a track record that can go both ways in terms of accuracy, but we won’t judge that here an now.
Instead, we’ll tell you that according to him, an Android smartphone is on its way, made by Samsung and BlackBerry. The resulting “SamBerry” might or might not have a physical keyboard, but the device resulting from said Samsung-BlackBerry collaboration would run Android 5.0 Lollipop, and RIM’s BlackBerry services on top of it. It is unknown at the moment who will be the hardware manufacturer, or whether it will be a collaboration in this as well; we might be looking at another Samsung Galaxy phone with some BlackBerry software features built in, or a triumphant comeback of the physical keyboard to the Android world.
Let us know what you think, who would such a device be for, and whether you’d be interested in getting one.
