BlackBerry Elegance Concept Smartphone with Android

Research In Motion’s BlackBerry smartphones are highly appealing to enthusiasts, especially to those who have been using them for quite some time now.

In fact, some are so attached to these handsets that would want to see them offering the same interface as before, even if RIM decided to adopt another operating system for them. This is why the new BlackBerry Elegance concept device sports a custom user interface loaded on top of Android. Called Berry UI, it would be able to enhance some of the features that Google’s mobile platform has to offer. Coming from Bob Freking (via concept-phones), the handset combines a touchscreen display with a QWERTY keyboard in a portrait form factor, much like Palm’s Pixi smartphones did. However, it does include higher-end specifications, starting with the 3-inch touchscreen display that can deliver a 480 x 640 pixel resolution and 266 ppi density.

The mobile phone also packs a dual-core Snapdragon S4 application processor inside, which should provide users with the same performance capabilities as other Android handsets available on shelves today can deliver. On the back, BlackBerry Elegance would sport an 8-megapixel photo snapper, capable of shooting videos in 1080p resolution. In addition to the aforementioned QWERTY keyboard, the new device would also come with a BlackBerry button on the front. The most intriguing aspect of this concept phone remains the graphical interface that users get to interact with. Upon closer inspection, it would show both a series of elements that can be found today in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, as well as icons, widgets and the like that should be unique to the BlackBerry platform. Overall, the new handset boasts elegant lines and a shape that would certainly make it a great option for business users out there. Other BlackBerry concept phones did the same, though they did not move outside RIM’s mobile OS range.
