    I find this pic very fishy. If this was full blown android as people keep on saying, then it would have the BACK,HOME and APPS button but we only see the back button. The same back button we see on the android runtime currently when we have an android app open except this one its on the bottom.

    This implies that perhaps and people keep on forgetting about this statement " We’re already working on the follow-up update, BlackBerry 10.3.3 and will keep you posted over the coming months" I believe it has way more android intergration with an improved android runtime....(At least Android Lollipop) as we can tell that the back button is material design.

    Again as I said full android you would have all 3 buttons not just one.

    Also I believe that keyboard is BB10 not android. I think they will change the keyboard in the next update hence why this one looks a bit different than the current keyboard we have on 10.3.2.

    Again assumptions but to me it makes sense.

    UPDATE!!: Well it seems that Jasper-Ng made a valid point and observation that this looks like the android lockscreen . Especially since the blurred section looks exactly alike as the picture he showed as well with the back button only showing

    Thanks Jasper-NgThat virtual keyboard on the latest picture leak is fishy..that cant be full android...-lockscreen.jpg

    Some people said it was the backspace button that looked Android-like, but then again I saw the same one on the PKB pic so it may indeed be the case that they themed the keyboard for 10.3.3

    Really hoping you're right. I will for sure buy this device if it's running bb10, but probably not if it's android

    Yeah I know but I was more referring to the full android slider rumors in general . 10.3.3 means lollipop support with a way improved android runtime and way more android intergration that's all. I seriously do not think this phone is full android as people keep on saying...this picture IF real proves my point but then again assumptions.

    Trust me...if this pic IF real was full blown android it would have BACK HOME AND APPS button.....
    What I hate is that BlackBerry is moving to android and all signs point to BlackBerry being dead, which means that if this is actually bb10, it won't be supported for long

    Not true. it's the lock screen. See my android tablet lockscreen.
    When you are entering password, there's only the back button to retract the keyboard - similar to the leak
    you can even see the blurred out area resembles my lock screen - the emergency call button and the line

    It does have some similarities to the android keyboard but it has more similarities with the BB10 keyboard.font on the letters and numbers matches BB10 where the android font is not bold like the BB10 one is. The row of numbers on top of the letters. Not sure what OS it will ship with, but i do remember reading in the forums someone who has played with one and it was running BB10 and they also said they were planning on a double boot OS android and BB10 He claims his friend who works there told him but only time would tell

    I think the BlackBerry keyboard is part of the BlackBerry Experience Suite. That means that Hub and the keyboard would be ported over, probably in the form of apps.
    Can easily change the keyboard layout, look and feel by downloading another keyboard app (e.g. Swiftkey or any other)

    Though I still root for bb10, this is what I was thinking too, why couldn't BlackBerry add their own keyboard if swift key and all them don't look like the stock Android keyboard

    My only concern is can they actually make android more secure like bb10 for the end user (consumer) if you do not have BES and the other enterprise services

    My bet is BB10 with a full android runtime will google play and still in a container. New look like it's Android M. but still full BlackBerry 10

    I still hope gesture and active frames will be there in OS 10.3.3 or else I'm gone

    The fun factor wears off. Especially when things are as 'boring' as they've been lately lol. Also, pretty sick of the word 'Hypervisor' too. Just saying.

    That photo is definitely Android with a BlackBerry Experience Suite soft keyboard. The keyboard looks like BlackBerry's, but the font is Roboto.
