While the whacky and unique square design of the BlackBerry Passport is unlikely to ever make it to the Android platform, the company has been buoyed by the early success of the Priv and is now working on another handset for Google's OS. The smartphone in question will take inspiration from the Passport with a visible QWERTY keyboard (the Priv's deck slides under the screen) and the handset it called the BlackBerry Vienna.Some images of the Vienna have been leaked by Crackberry, which has an excellent track record on all things BlackBerry. The design is more toned down compared to the stand out in all circumstances Passport, with the Vienna looking more elongated and compact. There is no news on specific specs just yet, although we would guess that BlackBerry will be aiming at the mid-range market with the Vienna. Obviously those who text and email a lot will be the target audience here, so would you consider this on the Android platform? source: CrackBerry
