BlackBerry wants to pair with smartphones with a hardware keyboard.
The last time the TLC licensed partner, whose license expired last year, tried his luck with this brand. Probably since then, BlackBerry has been looking for a new partner to make smartphones with their logo. Eventually, the company succeeded and found a new partner in OnwardMobility, which announced that it would design and sell smartphones under the BlackBerry brand. These should also be the first smartphones of this brand with the support of fifth-generation networks.
The BlackBerry was once one of the security units in the smartphone market. They developed their own operating system called the Blackberry OS. The company also produced its own smartphones, which were used mainly in the corporate environment, where it was also necessary to have a subscription for full use of the smartphone with this OS. The main advantage of the brand’s smartphones was the redesigned keyboard, which was one of the best at the time. With the advent of the Android operating system, sales of their smartphones gradually declined, and the system with the robot logo gradually penetrated the corporate sphere as well.
OnwardMobility is already working with Foxconn to develop new models. These should be available in North America, Europe and China. At the same time, the company’s director – Peter Franklin said that OnwardMobility is well on its way to producing a smartphone with a hardware keyboard. Unfortunately, the exact date of the introduction and launch of the first devices is not yet known.
