BlackBerry Vienna leaks out, could be BlackBerry's second Android smartphone
Remember those rumors about an Android version of the BlackBerry Passport? While such a device might never exist, it looks like BlackBerry is working on a new Android handset that has an always visible QWERTY keyboard - unlike the Priv, which features a hidden keyboard that's revealed only if you slide the display up. The handset that we're talking about is codenamed Vienna - this name kind of makes sense, since the Priv was codenamed Venice (in case you don't know, Vienna and Venice are both famous European cities).

CrackBerry has what seem to be the first images of the BlackBerry Vienna, with the mention that this might not be the device's final design. The handset doesn't seem to have the premium look of the BlackBerry Priv, and we assume it's going to be a cheaper product. There's a lot of bezel around the display of the Vienna, and we can also see three physical Android keys just above the QWERTY keyboard. Rear and front-facing cameras are also visible.

Unfortunately, there's no word on when we should expect BlackBerry to announce the Vienna (or whatever it's going to be called when it hits the market), but we're looking forward to finding out more about it. How about you: would you be interested in buying a BlackBerry Android smartphone like this?
