    Marshmallow (Developer version ) is already available and being tested on Nexus 6 & 9. As it is not being tested on the Venice, I imagine that device is not being treated similarly to Nexus devices and must wait to get M with other Android manufacturers. Marshmallow is expected to release before end of October. Even with a close alliance between Google and Blackberry, I am hard pressed to believe that Venice will release with Marshmallow before Christmas.

    I agree with you though I'm hoping it does ship with 6.0 as dc2000 said according to his carrier records. Maybe we'll know on the 29th and see if Google is really pushing the Venice themselves as rumoured.

    For BlackBerry to put the Android robot with a shield in the startup is really something lol . . . -

    Hey hackers of the Android world DO YOUR WORST(or best). Lol what are they thinking puting a target on them like that.

    Really guys, the red underline and the fact you're opening a new topic, can't do a quick proof read?

    What exactly is baka? repair shop? 3rd party dealer? I never knew they had any affiliation with Bell, actually I've never heard of Baka up until now...
    No idea but I'd assume 3rd party.

    Third party dealer for a few carriers. I've heard of them before via HowardForums.

    I'm confused by this, why would a 3rd party get this? I'd understand if it was an unboxing because they got it early but a dev build or alpha or whatever it is? that doesnt make sense....

    It can't be an eval unit, there's s picture bla1ze posted in one of the forums, and you can see the slight and subtle but still there, silver bezel. Have to assume that would make it a final model, and if your info leads up to an announcement on the 23/29 it would have to already be the final product.

    You're right, I am guilty of back seat moderating. I should have just reported it to moderators. Just run into so many bad titles, it's killing me.

    You want the community members to care and put in a little effort, no? I've been to sites that get ruined over time, don't want to see it here, too.

    Chill pill taken.

    Doesn't BlackBerry typically announce launch events well in advance? The September 24th Passport "Save the Date" came out on September 2nd. And the December 17th Classic launch was announced on November 13th.

    Maybe they're going to let Google do the majority of their talking for them? Bigger audience that way, I suppose. And, people wouldn't be so quick to dismiss yet another BlackBerry "doomed device" announcement. Not to say BlackBerry themselves won't officially reveal it first, but likely they'd pair it with another event like the earnings call or the Germany store opening. That way they don't spend so much money on pomp and circumstance.

    Plus they don't have to go out and hire a Jeff Gadway.

    Jeff was a marketing manager for BlackBerry? I'd like to think I'd do a better job.

    Who the he'll does blackberry have who could demo this anyway these days? All the passionate and articulate employees were fired or left. I can just picture Chen up there using the device wrong, stutter all the time, essentially looking like my grandpa the first time he picked up a cellphone. Lol
