In January 2022, BlackBerry officially announced the end of support for phones.
Support for BlackBerry software BlackBerry 7.1, BlackBerry 10 or other phones or tablets was discontinued by the Canadian company on January 4, 2022.
That means using Wi-Fi on BlackBerry devices, phone calls, text messages and other functions no longer work, meaning they are useless for phone users.
But those who love BlackBerry phones expect that more new phones from the Canadian company will be available in the market and the American company On Word Mobility will introduce them.
In August 2020, the Canadian company partnered with FIH Mobile Limited, a subsidiary of Onward Mobility and Foxconn, to introduce new BlackBerry phones.
No further details have been released, but Onward Mobility has said it wants to develop a BlackBerry phone that works on Android.
But by the end of 2021, Onward Mobility had said that it was ready to offer 5G BlackBerry phones.
But now the era of the BlackBerry brand is definitely coming to an end as according to reports, the license granted to Onward Mobility to manufacture BlackBerry has been revoked.
According to the report, BlackBerry wants to position itself as a smartphone maker after selling its mobile patent portfolio for 600 million.
It should be noted that BlackBerry was once the dominant company in the world of mobile phones, but the iPhone and Android phones lost its popularity.
