BlackBerry to focus on high-end QWERTY devices and not touchscreens in the future
This matches up with the claims that the CEO made roughly a fortnight ago in a video interview with CBC. Apparently, most of BlackBerry's enterprise customers did not fancy the company's recent touchscreen smartphones and demanded that John Chen and his employees treat them with more old-school, keyboard-sporting smartphones.
Interestingly, Chen confessed that he also favored QWERTY smartphones and told a funny joke that explained his preference. Allegedly, Chen was texting a colleague with his touchscreen BlackBerry and the auto correct feature of the device modified "in the car" to "in the cat".
So, what does this mean? Simply put, you should expect the majority of future BlackBerry devices to look more like this unreleased handset and not like this beautiful concept.
