Although Blackberry did announce that they will no longer be manufacturing their own smartphone, that does not mean that we will not be seeing anymore Blackberry smartphones in the market.
The CEO of the ex-smartphone manufacturer, John Chen, told Bloomberg in an interview that there is going to be one keyphone phone in the future. He also added that the new phone will not be like the DTEK50 and the DTEK60 that Blackberry has offered recently which are rebranded Alcatel smartphones with their software and security build in.
While they did not reveal the name of the device or when it will be arriving, some people think that the Blackberry device with the QWERTY physical keyboard could be a Blackberry Bolt type smartphone with a physical keyboard.
As for when it will be arriving, all he said was that the device was on the way. Let’s hope we will see it real soon.
