We know that it has been a while and a lot has happened after then but if you can recall, before the Blackberry Priv was made official, there was sightings of a Blackberry Passport Silver Edition which was not running on the stock BB OS but instead, on the Android platform and a lengthy video was used to show that this works just as perfect as your everyday Android device.
However, that smartphone never got to see a launch and right now, if you want to have one and you’ve got luck on your side, it could as well be yours.
Someone claimed to have gotten one of such units from a BB employee and they have instead put it up for sale on eBay, claiming that they are more interested in Apple devices than they are in Blackberry smartphones. Given that it is only one unit for the sea of people that would want it, you now know where the luck factor comes in, so don’t throw away that four leaf clover just yet.
As to those that are interested, it carries a price tag of CAD 250 and be informed that we have no info as to how well it runs the Android OS.
