OnwardMobility today announced agreements with and FIH Mobile Limited (HKG: 2038), a subsidiary of Foxconn Technology Group, to deliver a new BlackBerry 5G smartphone Android with a physical keyboard, in the first half of 2021 in North America and Europe.

Under the terms of the agreement, BlackBerry grants OnwardMobility the right to develop, engineer, and bring to market a BlackBerry 5G mobile device. Working closely with OnwardMobility, BlackBerry and FIH Mobile will ensure world-class design and manufacturing of these devices.

With the increasing number of employees working remotely with critical data and applications, coupled with the constant threat of cyberattacks, there is an absolute need for a secure, feature-rich 5G-ready phone that enhances productivity.

Employees are demanding better workplace technology experiences, and organizations are facing increasingly complex challenges in selecting, deploying, securing and managing devices to meet expectations and maximize employee productivity.

“Enterprise professionals are eager for secure 5G devices that enable productivity, without sacrificing the user experience,” said Peter Franklin, CEO of OnwardMobility. “BlackBerry smartphones are known for protecting communications, privacy, and data. This is an incredible opportunity for OnwardMobility to bring next-generation 5G devices to market with the backing of BlackBerry and FIH Mobile.”

“Companies are rapidly investing in transformative technologies to improve productivity, but often don’t place enough emphasis on security, particularly in their use of mobile devices,” said analyst Jack Gold, President and Principal Analyst of J. Gold Associates, LLC.

“With 5G quickly coming to market, and the acceleration it will cause in upgrading mobile devices and deploying productivity-enhancing apps, deploying proven and highly secure products like the BlackBerry 5G devices in enterprises, government, and regulated industries like finance or legal, is mission-critical.”

“BlackBerry is thrilled OnwardMobility will deliver a BlackBerry 5G smartphone device with physical keyboard leveraging our high standards of trust and security synonymous with our brand. We are excited that customers will experience the enterprise and government level security and mobile productivity the new BlackBerry 5G smartphone will offer,” said John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO, BlackBerry.

OnwardMobility will conduct product planning and market development for BlackBerry smartphones in North America and FIH Mobile will design and manufacture the BlackBerry devices under strict guidelines to ensure component, device and supply chain integrity.

“As an exclusive supplier to OnwardMobility, we’re committed to delivering new BlackBerry 5G devices to market, utilizing our deep expertise in design, manufacturing, component supply and logistics management,” said Dr. Wen-Yi Kuo, Executive Director, FIH Mobile.

I once said it and I'll repeat it again
I for one believe there's a code in the company which states that a physical keyboard is a must no matter what and in my opinion it's like they are cursed to repeat the same mistake
Why would you repeat something that caused your downfall...no body wanted a physical keyboard anymore no they didn't listen now they failed.....years later..a physical keyboard is a crazy idea..no they aren't listening

They just want to wate money in my opinion....I don't think anyone one would want a physical keyboard in 2020 when bezeless designs are the new trend

Only one blackberry device...the z30 didn't have a physical keyboard but no they abandoned that idea or maybe it was too late for them.

I know plenty people that would only use physical keyboards on smartphones........ So it's a niche market, with possibly only one relatively priced manufacturer.........
