BlackBerry to Lay Out Next 12 Month Roadmap at MWC in March

Chen (2)

John Chen just wrapped up the end of the main launch for the BlackBerry Classic in the US and dropped one last tidbit worth mentioning. He stated that they will have a presence at CES in January especially with QNX showing off a Maserati. Last but not least is that they are going to lay out their next 12 month plan at Mobile World Congress in March of 2015. That is a bit off but my guess is we will see where the company is headed.

  1. This is what I believe will be revealed:

    Visa/Victoria Concept with keyboard (Patent we saw)
    Passport 2
    Full Touch Screen Device.
    Classic 2 let’s say with 4 inch screen
    Also a Blackberry Tablet (John Chen said it himself when he went to Hong Kong that they are working on a tablet with a keyboard)

    What do you guys think??

  2. im hoping they will release a phone with physical kb and toolbelt in the 200 dollar range

  3. Well, Anthony, if you’re right it sounds good to me.
    Ronen: good to see you here!

  4. Z10 Re-Fresh – Code Name RIO
    Z30 Re-Fresh – Possibly called Z50 (5″ 1080p HD Screen etc.)
    Passport 2
    Tablet – 10″ & 7″ HD Screens.

    I don’t see another QWERTY with the Toolbelt. I believe the Classic is the 1st and last one based on John Chen’s past interviews on the matter.

    • Actually I believe he mentioned that the BlackBerry Classic will be a new line in BlackBerry’s lineup. Meaning that there are definitely going to be refreshes of that phone.

  5. Hope to see 1 good all touch Z10/30 replacement. That is all we can hope for. There is not going to be multiple touch devices.

  6. It’s great that they’ve decided to go ahead an publish a 12 month roadmap. No more digging to do, no more surprises. You know what to expect and roughly when. The don’t have the money to introduce crazy models that no-one wants and people will take BlackBerry devices for what they are: Efficient, top of the mid-range smartphones. You want craziness, go with Samsung and LG, you want something that works, albeit in a very limited way, go with Apple.

  7. I hope they won’t waste too much money on trying to make QNX work as a desktop OS to try and compete with Windows on a tablet. I don’t see a QNX tablet with a keyboard being even half as useful as a Surface tablet. But if it’s a dumb terminal, à la iPad, then it could work quite well with Blend on top.
