The end of a keyboard phone era! Goodbye, BlackBerry!

By  Ariella Riley 2020-02-21 605 1

[PConline News] according to the latest information, BlackBerry Mobile officially announced that TCL will stop selling BlackBerrys on Aug. 31, 2020, which means that TCL will not offer new BlackBerrys after Aug. 31.

BlackBerry Mobile wrote on Twitter that TCL will not have the right to design, manufacture and sell any new BlackBerry mobile devices from Aug. 31, 2020. TCL was first licensed by BlackBerry Mobile in December 2016 to develop and sell BlackBerry smartphones because the BlackBerry itself is no longer a phone, but in the form of a brand license to keep the BlackBerry going.

BlackBerry has always been popular with high-end business people for its full keyboard image, but with the popularity of smartphones and touch screens, BlackBerry's influence is declining. If BlackBerry Mobile can't find other partners after TCL officially stops producing BlackBerry phones on Aug. 31, it may mean the end of this once highly influential brand in the business market.

Of course, for BlackBerry devices already on the market, TCL Communications said it would continue to support existing mobile devices, including customer service and warranty, until Aug. 31, 2022, or for the period required by local law. So users who buy BlackBerrys don't have to worry too much.
