BlackBerry’s upcoming device the Venice has gained lot of attention even before its release. Supposedly, the device will run on the Android OS and will come with a sliding keyboard, which is a unique feature of the device. CEO John Chen and company have teased the device at various exhibitions and conventions, but official information on the release date and specifications has not been revealed yet. However, there are good chances we will hear about it officially next month.
More information on Venice and other phones
On Oct. 7 and 8, BlackBerry CEO John Chen will once again be speaking on the firm’s future at a convention in California — The Code/Mobile event – which is hosted by Re/Code. It is expected that new information on the Venice device will be presented to the world at this event. We may also get information on several handsets about which we’ve been hearing rumors for the last few months, says a report from Geek Snack. At the event, Chen could unveil a launch schedule, most likely for the BlackBerry Venice and other new flagship smartphones.

Previously, Chen promised that the Canadian firm will release four new handsets in 2015. Until now, the firm has released just one device, the BlackBerry Leap, which has not been very successful, while the remaining three have yet to be seen, and there are good chances the BlackBerry Venice is one of them.
Information on other BlackBerry products expected
The BlackBerry Passport was pretty successful although it could not reach the milestones set for the company’s handset business by Chen. On many occasions, Chen has signaled that he is not very sure about the future of BlackBerry’s handset business. It is expected that Chen will discuss the future of the industry and what it means for the BlackBerry Venice at the Code/Mobile event.
The other major topic that could be taken up at the event is QNX and how it is performing in smart cars around the world. The highlight at the event could be the software business and the improvements that have been planned for the next few years.
