The latest BlackBerry Venice leak falls right in line with past unscheduled appearances of the smartphone. It once again reveals that the device will feature a screen with slightly curved glass, as well as a loudspeaker that remains visible even when the slider is closed.
If released, the only reason I am going to dump my Note 4 for this phone will be the physical QWERTY keyboard.
I just don't get it people with difficult of typing, so they have to use a qwertboard. Just try many smart qwerty app available. You will forget qwertyboard for good.
A twin OS, double-boot idea is a killer one for any ONE phone. The beefed-up cameras and the curved display add to the appeal, as well. So, the Venice looks like having the trappings of hitting the sweet spot. But still, the chassis appears plasticky...
