Blackberry phones may soon shift to Android OS. Evan Blass, who earlier worked with Engadget as a senior editor recently tweeted an image that hinted Blackberry phones with Android may hit the market anytime soon.
The Image Decoded
The image at Blass’ Twitter handle @evleaks has a great resemblance to Blackberry Passport. It also appears to have a keyboard on its screen and when the keyboard is observed a bit carefully, it seems to be an Android keyboard.
Though the image posted on Friday created a sensation among the Blackberry users, who are anxiously waiting for the introduction of Android operating system in their favorite phone, this is not the only hint he offered.
Blass earlier tweeted that Blackberry slider displayed at the Barcelona Mobile World Congress came with an Android version, which according to the reports would be launched in the United States with AT&T carrier. While users are excited to get a Blackberry with Android, CEO John Chen said that they will only do it when they create a way of securing it.
“We only build secure phones, and BlackBerry is the most secure phone. So, if I can find a way to secure the Android phone, I will also build that,” he said to CNBC.
