A phone as bold as a BlackBerry running Android rather than its own software deserves a bold name. According to frequent Twitter tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks), that name will be Priv.
Now known by the code name Venice, the device, which is rumored to touch down in November, marks the first time BlackBerry has embraced a different operating system for its phones. Ditching its signature, security-focused BlackBerry platform would be a last-ditch effort for the beleaguered one-time market leader whose share has dwindled as Android and iOS platforms soared. It’s a move that critics have advised for years.
