This could be BlackBerry's second Android phone

BlackBerry is apparently working on another Android phone, codenamed "Vienna," and renders reveal what the upcoming handset might look like.

On the back of the Priv, BlackBerry may be working on a second Android handset. And this could be what it looks like.

CrackBerry managed to get its hands on renders of the alleged handset. It's referred to using the codename "Vienna," and if the renders prove accurate, the handset is dropping the Priv's slide keyboard in favour of BlackBerry's traditional keyboard.

There's unfortunately nothing to indicate that this is what the final product will look like. All we know for certain is that BlackBerry's John Chen confirmed that the company has 'a range of products after this,' when talking about the launch of the Priv. Even at that, it's unclear whether he was referencing new BlackBerry 10 or Android devices.

The BlackBerry Priv has been well received, so perhaps Android is the way to go for BlackBerry in the future. We'll have to wait a little while longer to see how Vienna shapes up.
