The BlackBerry Priv has been available for a few months now, but it’s hard to tell how successful it has been. Many people were excited about the idea of an Android device with a BlackBerry keyboard. Apparently, BlackBerry still believes in the keyboard. Rumor has it that BlackBerry will show off their second Android device at MWC next week.

The rumored device is the BlackBerry Vienna, which we last heard about back in November. The Vienna ditches the slide-out keyboard for a more traditional BlackBerry look. The keyboard is permanently affixed to the front of the phone underneath the 5-inch 1080p display. Other rumored specs include 3GB of RAM and a18MP camera, but we don’t know a ton about this phone.

The rumored announcement at MWC is from a website we’ve never heard of before, so take this with a heaping mound of salt. The Vienna, on the other hand, is real and will be announced in the future. We’ll have to wait and see if that future is as early as next week. What do you think of BlackBerry’s second attempt at Android? Would you be interested in the Vienna?
