Do you remember Blackberry? You know, the once uber-popular device manufacturer that has since fallen from the minds of most consumers. Well, they have been trying to become prevalent again for some time now and their latest attempt is to release an Android powered device dubbed the Prague. What? Yes, that is correct. Instead of running on their Blackberry 10 OS, the Prague would be a low-end device running on Googles popular OS that will cater to emerging markets.
[blockquote author=”N4BB”]… a Reuters report has added credence to what we discussed in our podcast months ago, with claims that BlackBerry will offer an Android-powered device alongside its BB10 offerings.[/blockquote]
This is all speculation, of course, as Blackberry has not officially announced Prague nor that it would be running on Android. The rumors started from a report that N4BB received a few weeks ago and they are convinced that the device will release sometime in August. As with most rumors, we won’t know what specs the device will have nor if it will even be powered by Android until we receive an official announcement from Blackberry. Here is hoping that the rumors are true though, as Blackberry is known for making very secure devices and in this modern age of hacking, it would be nice to have such a device, running on Android.
