WASHINGTON — This Tuesday, BlackBerry announced its plan to offer its very popular instant messaging system to competitors and rivals, in addition to a mid-tier smartphone that is targeting its stronger markets.
This new Q6 smartphone is going to be available this July in certain markets in Europe, Latin America, Asia, Middle East and Africa. The famous “QWERTY” keyboard sets the BlackBerry phone apart from all its competitors.
Though no phone prices were discussed or announced, this shows that BlackBerry is trying to orchestrate its comeback. It even rebranded its name, changing from the old name Research in Motion (RIM) to BlackBerry.
