We’re not entirely sure how successful the launch of the BlackBerry Priv was, but the device seemed to receive a relatively warm reception. Striking while the iron is still hot, BlackBerry could be looking to launch another Android-powered device — the BlackBerry Vienna.
Carrying a more traditional BlackBerry design, the Vienna (codename) has a candy-bar form factor with a full QWERTY keyboard that occupies the front of the smartphone. It’s tough to tell from the leaked renders alone, but the keyboard almost appears to be the same size as the Priv’s, only with less screen real estate to play around with.
It’s possible BlackBerry could tweak the final design of the Vienna before its release, so the actual device could look slightly different once launched. Unfortunately specs or other hardware details weren’t revealed, so you’ll have to keep guessing like the rest of us. What do you guys think? Would you favor this form factor over the slide-out QWERTY keyboard of the Priv?
