BlackBerry is not giving up, not yet. John Chen, BlackBerry’s CEO, confirmed that BlackBerry still has one more trick up its sleeve, with a new smartphone set to be released soon.
This is opposite to their previous stand when BlackBerry officially said it would quit the smartphone business back in September, outsourcing the production of new devices to third parties.
Chief Executive Officer John Chen had hinted at the phone in September, but hadn’t confirmed it until Thursday, when he spoke to Emily Chang in an interview on Bloomberg TV.
“We have one keyboard phone I promised people,” Chen said. “It’s coming.”
