    I'd say with all those apk files, the Venice will be running a highly customized experience..

    A long time ago. In fact, I've seen BlackBerry Contacts and BlackBerry Calendar in the Android image contained in my Passport.

    Just run App Ops in a BlackBerry 10.3.2 image. You'll see those apps, and almost everything in the AOSP.

    Agreed. I'm happy to see 'confirmation' (such as it is) of the Hub as well since there was some speculation that it would not be available.

    Edit: Of course all of this is speculation...

    If they do, they better make sure that the hub in Android is as good as it is in BlackBerry 10.

    So, is it mean that BlackBerry import all the popular apps of BB10 to Slider Android? I'm sure BlackBerry did find way to secure this Slider Android.

    It's likely that.


    Slider runs android with a root of trust.
    BlackBerry experience suite apps as announced will be embedded into the launcher
    Bes 12 secures "corporate data" in a closed container (android for work)
    Likely has google services stock.

    At least you get a message with Android. I have had the hub lock up a couple times on me in 10.3.2.2339.

    Glad to see Tasks, Notes, Calendar and Contacts as BlackBerry Apps and of course the best of all, the Hub. No one has to use Google Calendar, Maps or YouTube but with the Venice they finally CAN (at full speed)!

    Hopefully we'll see all the stock BlackBerry software including BlackBerry Travel and Password Keeper and that they run as well on Android as in BB10. Then I will seriously consider retiring my Classic. Maybe we'll see an official announcement in the very near future.

    I can't wait to see screenshots of this. Hopefully BlackBerry's take on Android will be more visually consistent than BB10. I'm sure it'll be fine, functionally.

    Do the tasks and notes .apks mean that they're killing that horrendous remember app?

    And I wonder if I'll be able to back up some of the .apks and blackberry-ify my old android tablet, or if they'll be locked to the blackberry hardware?
