Blackberry’s first Android phone rumoured to come in August

BlackberryA few days ago, there were rumours that the Blackberry’s first Android-powered smartphone – codenamed Venice – might arrive in November. However, a new report is suggesting that the Venice might not run Android at all.

As per the report, the Canadian company’s debut Android phone will instead be called Prague. Aimed at emerging markets, it will be a low-end, all-touch device, with form factor similar to that of the BlackBerry Z3 (shown in the image above). The handset is expected to be released in August this year, the report notes.

Needless to say, none of this has been officially confirmed by the company, so take it with a pinch of salt.
