One of the weirdest little pocket devices in 2015 is Blackberry’s still “rumored” Venice, a slider smartphone with physical keys running near stock Android. With a new hands on video with an evaluation unit of Blackberry’s new smartphone Frankenstein, Baka Mobile’s brief four-minute tour shows off some cool stuff.
Intrigue! Mystery! Really shitty phones from 2008! We have a strange situation on our hands: The former co-CEO of BlackBerry recently broke his years-long silence on the company to reminisce about one of its worst failures, the BlackBerry Storm, but he told a weird lie that made the Storm sound like an even bigger… »
The Typo is dead, huzzah! BlackBerry has settled its lawsuit against the makers of the the terrible Ryan Seacrest-backed snap-on physical keyboard for iPhones.
When square phones don't quite work and suing Ryan Seacrest is taking too long, what's a BlackBerry to do? Combine the weirdest new hardware trend and a classic old one together in one super (silly?) smartphone. Blackberry just teased the new "dual-curved, all-touch display with a keyboard—yes a slider device!" at… »
BlackBerry is trying to destroy the best thing it ever made. Not the line of hardware keyboard phones, or the less-relevant-than-ever BBM service. I'm talking about the music video. That mind-blowingly earnest and inexplicable REO Speedwagon cover about BlackBerry 10. It's gone now. What the fuck, BlackBerry? »
BlackBerry has jumped into the debate on net neutrality the way that BlackBerry does just about everything these days: ass-backwards.

Reuters is reporting that Samsung has approached BlackBerry with a takeover offer for as much as $7.5 billion, which would be about 38 percent more than the stock market says the Canadian company is even worth. Samsung supposedly wants access to BlackBerry patents and also may be trying to up its security game with… »
I must be a masochist. I'm typing this whole review on a Bluetooth keyboard smaller than my two thumbs. Touch-type a dozen letters or so—until I make a mistake, wind up with some gibberish and go back to hunting and pecking once more. Yep, definitely a masochist. »
We've known for nearly a year that Boeing is working on an understandably hush-hush smartphone project. It's a self-destructing phone for spies called the Boeing Black. And now we know that BlackBerry is helping—which is kind of weird since the Boeing Black runs on Android. Again, it's all very hush-hush. »
Today, BlackBerry pulled the wrapper off the Classic, a smartphone that conjures up memories of the Canadian company's Qwerty-powered past. »
