TCL to produce a BlackBerry tablet?
So when BlackBerry released the PlayBook without a calendar app and a native email client (only the one application that BlackBerry was well known for), eyes rolled again. The slate was not what you would call a big seller. By 2013, nearly two-years after the PlayBook's launch, then CEO Thorsten Heins said that BlackBerry had no plans to produce another tablet. And that's where things were left until today.
On the MWC website is a listing for every company that is participating in this year's show. BlackBerry's listing notes how its phones are now manufactured, marketed and sold under a licensing agreement with TCL. At the bottom of the listing, under tags, BlackBerry is given credit for being a manufacturer of Devices, Consumer Electronics, and Tablet Devices.
It might not mean anything, or it might mean that with TCL involved, BlackBerry is going to make another attempt at producing a tablet. Of course, we would expect any new BlackBerry branded slab to be powered by Android.
