Our First Good Look At The Blackberry Android Franken-Phone

Blackberry is betting on you missing those glorious tactile keys that were the company’s signature — which is why it’s getting together with Android to hack together a smartphone called the Blackberry Venice. And today, we got our first good look.

File this one under “faintly plausible rumours”, but Reuters is quoting a number of sources as saying that Blackberry is planning to launch a smartphone running Android sometime this fall.


Former BlackBerry Leader Tells Weird Lie About The Storm's Return Rate

Intrigue! Mystery! Really shitty phones from 2008! We have a strange situation on our hands: The former co-CEO of BlackBerry recently broke his years-long silence on the company to reminisce about one of its worst failures, the BlackBerry Storm, but he told a weird lie that made the Storm sound like an even bigger trashcan nightmare than it actually was.

BlackBerry Classic Review: Good At Being A BlackBerry, And Not Much Else

Let’s talk about the word “classic.” Classic can mean “timeless,” as in an ageless beauty that never fades or a joke with a punchline that always hits. It can also mean “old,” like the candy red ’57 Chevy you’ll probably never see on a modern highway. Which one describes the BlackBerry Classic? Take a guess.


BlackBerry Tries To Guilt Everyone Into Making Apps For Its Platform

BlackBerry has jumped into the debate on net neutrality the way that BlackBerry does just about everything these days: ass-backwards. Last night, BlackBerry CEO John Chen wrote a blog post that contorted the standard definition of net neutrality into a complicated pretzel of crazy, insisting that Apple and Netflix are violating the principle of net neutrality by… not making iMessage and Netflix available for BlackBerry customers.


Report: Samsung Is Trying To Buy Blackberry

Reuters is reporting that Samsung has offered Blackberry a takeover offer for as much as $US7.5 billion, which would be about 38 per cent more than the stock market says the Canadian hardware company is even worth.
