    Folks,

    Ok so we have a new device coming from BlackBerry or so the rumors go Chen says more are coming (although he did NOT say if it's BB10 or Android, but based on how they seem to be selling i.e. the Priv keeps selling out on Amazon! you draw your own conclusions) John Chen confirms 'we have a range of products after this' in interview with Fox Business | CrackBerry.com

    Our own Phil Nickinson wrote a great blog showing off what the next BlackBerry Android might/should look like. BlackBerry Vienna — the second Android BB — is a candybar with more physical buttons? | Android Central

    So who is excited for this device? I already own a Priv and I really love it, BUT I can see the value of another member of the family without the slider factor AND perhaps a bit cheaper. I've also considered if BB should do a non keyboard Android and their I have mixed feelings. BlackBerry's competitive advantage, IF it can be said they have one, is the physical keyboard. That is what they do better than anyone else. Many people make good slab Android phones, BUT who has made a good Android with a physical keyboard? I guess Moto came the closest.

    Anyways what are your thoughts?

    Well I just got a Priv, I doubt I would buy the Vienna but it does have a cool look to it. Hope it does well.

    If they had a passport version I'd be more inclined to want it.

    Priv screen goes up.

    This guy has a BB Passport running Android. I think it's more than likely the 'Vienna' is going to be the Android version of Passport (same hardware). Looks good - Video

    There are a couple Android BlackBerry Passports out there (for testing) since there is a small chance there might be a Android version being released.

    The BlackBerry "Vienna" (which is currently under a different name) will be released in October this year (currently planned, which can change)

    It looks more like a BlackBerry Classic upgrade. But I'm definitely excited to use one soon.

    Vienna... is no more.

    Not really sure why they jumped the gun on creating this "section"... should have be rumored devices. Which there are some other rumored devices, but with even less info than there was on the Vienna.
