BlackBerry still launching a handset next month

I contacted BlackBerry and asked two questions. I got the answer within minutes:

Is BlackBerry going ahead with the DTEK?

Yes.

Is BlackBerry still committed to Android updates?

Yes.

Both DTEKs are not made my BlackBerry but by TCL who also developed the hardware. There is a third device in the pipeline and I have not asked about that. BlackBerry will not be developing further handset hardware, and frankly, there isn't anybody left who understands hardware. But they will continue to invest in software. And then enable others to make BlackBerry devices.

Thanks. Did they ever specify how long they expect to ship Android upgrades?

They never did. But their hardware customers are also their software customers. I am not worried at all that you will lose support during the lifetime of the product.

Headset oder Handset? ;-)
