EXCLUSIVE: BlackBerry phones designed in India may be sold globally soon
- The next phones will be designed for India, but may be sold around the world.
OptiemusInfracom holds the license for distribution and manufacturing on BlackBerryphones.
- The company will be announcing new smartphones in the next two quarters.
Since Optiemus will be manufacturing the upcoming devices, they will be sold in India first and then the rest of the world, should other license holders, like TCL, choose to do so.
Singh said that his company wants to sell BlackBerry phones across all price ranges, though he can't provide final prices for the devices yet.
However, he did confirm that these devices would be announced in India within the next two quarters. BlackBerry will continue its discourse around security, but it's no longer focusing on enterprise and business customers alone. Instead, Singh says he wants the general consumer to recognise the importance of security and hence, BlackBerry.
