BlackBerry is quitting the phone business—again. You might recall BlackBerry quit manufacturing smartphones back in 2016, but it licensed its brand name to the Chinese smartphone corporation TCL. TCL started pumping out BlackBerry-branded devices—some of which were QWERTY equipped and some of which were shameless rebadgings of existing TCL phones. TCL's Zombie BlackBerry plan apparently wasn't working too well, though, since now that's dead, too.
Wonder if @33mhz has one of these TCL-made devices or if he rocks it old school with a Canadian-designed model 🤔The end of BlackBerry phones: TCL will cease sales in August 2020
