BlackBerry is still committed to BB10 support, but given the recently-released, high-profile and high-in-demand Priv, you’d think that the company seems a little torn in its software development. But it wouldn’t make sense for the Canada-based OEM to just go one-and-done with the whole Android deal, right? Especially considering that the Priv is considered as “step one” towards getting its devices unit back to profitability.
Enter the BlackBerry “Vienna,” a phone much like the BlackBerry Priv (codenamed “Venice,” so watch out for another name) in terms of height and keyboard, except there’s no sliding involved: just a keyboard sharing space with the screen.
The color palette is a little muted, the patterning seems a bit crazy and the screen’s a bit small relative to the device’s scale. But more importantly, it’s a low-res picture we’re looking at and it has not been supported by further evidence.
