T-Mobile CEO Says BlackBerry Is On A Comeback
BlackBerry, previously known as Research In Motion, once conquered the industry in a global scale with its strong lineup of ergonomic and handy smartphones, such as the Bold and Torch series. Today though, the company isn't doing so hot in the market unlike tech giants Apple, Samsung and LG, which took a huge chunk of the smartphone industry. However, T-Mobile's CEO John Legere believes that the Waterloo is on its way for a comeback.
In an interview with CNET, T-Mobile CEO John Legere said that BlackBerry is "on a comeback" when asked last week about his thoughts on the Ontario-based company. The CEO's words of support seemed to represent a turnaround between the Telecom giant and the smartphone maker that had split last year. Recently though, the pair has started to once again stand in partnership when T-Mobile carried the BlackBerry Classic in May.
Currently, BlackBerry's latest line-up is only limited to a number of devices. Their latest smartphone, the BlackBerry Priv, is the first smartphone that runs on Google's Android mobile operating system. It's a great addition to the company's portfolio as it gives a breath of fresh air to the company's reliable user base. According to reports, AT&T is the first carrier in the United States to sell the device, but T-Mobile may have some plans to carry it as well.
"I'm energized about our renewed relationship with T-Mobile and I'm excited about what 2016 will bring. We will continue to move forward together," said BlackBerry CEO John Chen in an email to CNET.
It appears that BlackBerry is also investing further in the Android system. Reports have started circulating that the company is planning to release its second Android-powered smartphone, codenamed Vienna. Based on the renders, the Vienna will ditch the slider that came with the Priv in favor of an always physical keyboard which is similar to its previous lineups.
