Around this time of year, it is not too surprising that there are a number of rumors floating about. After all, IFA is only a couple of months away and the likes of the new Moto X, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the new Moto 360 are all on the cards for a late Fall release. Not to mention, in only a couple of weeks the latest OnePlus smartphone will be unveiled too. So as to be expected, rumors are aplenty. That said, one rumor which has really caught reaction and consumer attention is one circulating around BlackBerry. More specifically, an inbound BlackBerry device running on Android.

For obvious reasons, a BlackBerry android device is one which is causing massive debate. BlackBerry devices were notoriously popular and the idea of one running on android will split public opinion quite diversely. As has been the case over the last few weeks. That has not stopped the influx of leaked images and renders doing the rounds. With the latest seeming that the BlackBerry device will be called the BlackBerry Venice and will be en route to AT&T. Although, other rumors detail a more low-budget Android Prague is en route too. Well, to add more fuel to the already raging BlackBerry Android rumors, it seems BlackBerry is behind the curtains making moves to prepare for a launch of an android smartphone.
The latest rumors state that BlackBerry have recently registered two new web domains. The ones in question are AndroidSecured.com and AndroidSecured.Net. According to the details, the domains were initially registered to a corporate domain registrar, however, a leaked image (shown below) detail that the ownership of the domains is in fact BlackBerry Limited. If you are wondering what the connection between secure and android is for BlackBerry than it is worth pointing out that BlackBerry CEO John Chen was recently noted saying that he would make a BlackBerry Android device if he could make a ‘secure one’. Of course, none of this cements the fact that a BlackBerry Android device is incoming, but as mentioned, it should add fuel to the ever-growing fire. You can see the image detailing the domain names and ownership below.
