BlackBerry’s Next Android Smartphone, The Vienna, Also Comes With A Physical Keyboard

Is BB10 dead?

BlackBerry’s first ever Android smartphone, the Priv, is off to a good start in the markets it’s been launched in which shows that there’s really a market for an Android phone that has BlackBerry’s design sensibilities and their top-notch physical keyboard. The Canadian company isn’t stopping there – apparently they’re coming up with another Android device, codenamed Vienna, according to Crackberry.

The new phone still uses Android as its OS and still has a physical keyboard, but BlackBerry is apparently ditching the sliding mechanism for something more straightforward. Because of the simpler design and build, the Vienna might end up being cheaper than the Prive which may allow more people to buy it. Unfortunately, more detailed specs of the Vienna isn’t available as of the moment, but we’re still loving the fact that BlackBerry has finally seen the light and are making more Android phones.
