August 19, 2020

OnwardMobility today announced agreements with BlackBerry (NYSE: BB; TSX:BB) and FIH Mobile Limited (HKG: 2038), a subsidiary of Foxconn Technology Group, to deliver a new 5G BlackBerry Android smartphone with 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.

From their very first secure BlackBerry device to the development of breakthrough technology for IoT endpoint security and the integration of AI, BlackBerry has provided enterprise and business the security and confidence they need to be productive and succeed in a cyberworld full of risk. OnwardMobility will continue with this tradition.

“Enterprise professionals are eager for secure 5G devices that enable productivity without sacrificing user experience.

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.”
