    Wait, didn't they use some fellow with a large hammer in a previous ad campaign? Which comic book entity was he from again?
    Hmm...

    Well..
    The name is as ridiculous as the decision (rumor) to release the slider with Android.

    Oh well, if avenger is a good name then they could use Berrypop instead of lollipop...

    I'd welcome a red/gold Venice/Avenger(I don't buy that name, just fyi)

    I always wanted the S6 Edge iron man edition... that would look sexy as hell with the slider

    This edition almost made me convert. I'm in love with Iron Man since little and this phone is perfect, except for the OS. I'm pretty sure Tony Stark wouldn't use sh¡tdroid.

    You don't think Tony Stark would use android, he likes to tinker with stuff... android would be the only OS I'd believe he'd use.

    But, a red/gold venice slider... oh man, I'd drop $100 over the regulat venice just to have it.. But wouldn't drop $3000 for it...

    BlackDroid Max is what I'll call my new Venice. A new offspring from an ailing father and a rather promiscuous partner .

    No, he wouldn't use it. He would have his own personal "Stark OS" and instead of Siri or Cortana, it would be Jarvis... Anyway, I agree. I wouldn't pay that price for a smartphone that's going to break like a cheaper one. Red in an irresistible colour.

    every other google search comes back as 6.0... so, my bet that it's 6.0......

    what if were seeing isn't a 5.4" AMOLED screen from Samsung...

    but better a 6.0"(or similar) OLED screen from LG...

    Forget the Note Edge, this LG display bends on both sides | The Verge







    (more images in the article)..

    Let that last one sink in for you all...doesn't it show some resemblance to what we've seen with the Venice? maybe it's just me...

    LMAO ...

    A VERY interesting name with deep understones that can be perceived.

    Just exactly would this slider avenge?

    BB10, Blackberry as a prominent viable smartphone company with assets beyond, or ??

    Things that make you go .... Hmmmmmm?!

    Can someone do a summarised translation of that article please?

    Thanks!

    From another thread :
    Rumours:

    I hate to post rumours but those are from our trusted German friends and since they are out there, might as well share, FWIW:
    https://bb10qnx.de/2015/09/slider-wi...roid-passport/
    ?Blackberry Passport mit Android wird nicht passieren? und Infos zum kommenden Slider | mobileCTRL

    In summary:


    • Avenger, anyone?
    • Slider could possibly be named so...
    • The runtime has no differences with an Android operating system.
    • It does not run only about 3% of Android apps on BlackBerry OS10.
    • Certain Google services and data will not run on Google's servers but via the BlackBerry infrastructure.
    • No Android Passport
    We should not have to wait too much longer...

    Cheers,

    These 'edge' screens look very nice, but I fail to see the point in them. Can someone enlighten me? Won't this just lead to more frequent accidental touch input?

    The only vibe I got from this "article" was:

    Some German blogger was harassing the BlackBerry employees at IFA about information, when they made it pretty clear IFA was not the place where they could/would do any big announcements.

    Blogger kept coming back, disturbing the employees from their regular activities, so one of them made up an incredible story just to troll (and get rid of) the blogger.
    _____

    Now, why do I think this? Because every other person that went by the IFA stand got told "no hardware/OS information at this time".
