Can This Be True...Full Android on BlackBerry Smartphone

We have seen mobile phone giants fall to the pressure and heat going on in the smartphone industry; an example is Nokia mobile devices which now runs Windows Phone OS and even released an Android smartphone just to boost sales but yet still struggling compared to the likes of iPhone and Samsung. Another example of a big company abandoning its OS for Android is about to happen again if the rumors going around becomes legit. What's the rumor you asked? Thank you for asking. 

Rumor has it that BlackBerry is now considering running android OS on their devices. The Canadian company is seriously struggling to survive in a heated smartphone industry since the beginning of iPhone and the seriousness of Google to dominate the world of mobile devices. Although we saw this coming from the moment the BackBerry company decided to include and allow Android services & apps run on their devices officially, but we didn't think completely shipping a BlackBerry smartphone with android would happen so soon. Does this mean the demise of BlackBerry OS just like Nokia Symbian OS is near?

According to sources, the upcoming BlackBerry Slide will come with Android KitKat or Lollipop along with legacy BlackBerry apps and services found in BBOS 10. According to the firm "we do not comment on rumors and speculation, but we remain committed to the BlackBerry 10 operating system which provides security and productivity benefits that are unmatched"

There you have it folks, the people at BlackBerry didn't deny or validate the rumor, hence we will have to wait to see how things unfold in the coming weeks when the slider phone is expected to be released. 

What are your thoughts? Will BlackBerry phones eventually become android-run smartphones?
