BlackBerry’s Android slider reportedly launching exclusively on AT&T


BlackBerry and AT&T have held close ties for a bit of time now, and it looks like the two companies will be working with one another again for another high-brow handset.

According to serial leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks), the Android-based BlackBerry-branded slider that was rumored earlier in the month is indeed on the way, and AT&T will be the exclusive carrier at launch. The device is referred to as the “BlackBerry Venice,” but it’s likely that that title is just a codename, and won’t be the final brand whenever it does finally get released.

The slider will reportedly feature a touchscreen, as one might expect these days, but also a physical keyboard. The slider form factor would certainly be an interesting choice, seeing as it’s been quite some time since that style has seen the light of day.

Would you be interested in a slider from BlackBerry running Android?
