Two Blackberry Android Phones Will Be Produced This Year

New blackberry devices that runs completely on Android OS is reportedly going to be launched soon this year. You can recall that Blackberry had made it clear that they won't be producing any device running on blackberry OS anymore.

As stated at the BlackBerry Czech, two phones would be launched, one full touch screen (Hamburg) while the other will be physical qwerty buttons (Rome).

The official statement goes thus...
The BlackBerry “Hamburg” sits in the mid-range tier and packs an important surprise: the handset will lack the iconic BlackBerry keyboard, using only a touchscreen for input. The Hamburg should arrive no later than the autumn of 2016.

The BlackBerry “Rome” is a bit different, as BBCzech notes that the device will position itself in the premium category. Rumors point out that it will follow in the steps of the BlackBerry Priv, which means that it will sport both a physical keyboard and a touchscreen.

At an interview in India, BlackBerry CEO John Chen also confirmed that sub $400 BlackBerry (Android) phones are going to be released this year 2016. One interesting point he made was the high cost of BlackBerry Priv device which users lamented was too expensive especially for enterprises.

He also added that BlackBerry has picked out 10 countries including India, where their products would be marketed. The full interview can be read here
