BlackBerry published its latest quarterly results today - and after selling just 800,000 smartphones, and booking a larger-than-expected loss, it's confirmed that a new Android flagship is on the way.
It seems that the new Android flagship - featuring a large display that slides up to reveal a physical (but still touch-sensitive) keyboard - will be called the BlackBerry Priv.
