After reports about OnwardMobility lost its license to use the BlackBerry name and brand, the company today decided to shut it down, and it will no longer have the size of a BlackBerry 5G phone with a physical keyboard.
This comes after OnwardMobility signed an agreement with BlackBerry and FIH Mobile Limited, a Foxconn company back in 2020, to sell new phones starting with the 5G BlackBerry Android smartphone with a physical keyboard. Last month, the company announced that it was planning to launch its flagship smartphone soon.
BlackBerry put an end to all internal hardware development and gave it to its partners in 2016. TCL Communication introduced BlackBerry phones until 2020 that when OnwardMobility acquired a mobile manufacturing partnership. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
We would like to thank all of you for the great support you have given us since we started OnwardMobility. However, it is very unfortunate that we are announcing the closure of OnwardMobility, and we will not continue to make the smartphone more secure with a physical keyboard.
Please note that this was not a decision we made lightly or in haste. We share your frustrations in this article and assure you that this is not what we did and expected.
We truly thank the team of professionals who worked so hard on the project and to all of our loyal fans and partners who assisted us on this journey. It has been a pleasure to work with all of you and to hear your comments and comments.
Thank you for all your support and we wish you all the best!
