Once upon a time (not that long ago), a “little” company called Research in Motion (RIM) was on the brink of world domination in the always competitive mobile industry, outselling everyone from Apple to HTC, Samsung, Motorola, and LG with its productivity and security-centric BlackBerry smartphones.
OnwardMobility, which is a (truly) little-known US-based company in the “mobile security space” (according to its official website), originally promised to deliver a “new 5G BlackBerry Android smartphone with physical keyboard in the first half of 2021 in North America and Europe.”
Basically, OnwardMobility seems to want to gauge interest in its rookie BlackBerry-reviving effort, which suggests the product may not be very close to an official announcement yet, let alone a commercial release.
By joining this waitlist, you’ll get the chance to be among the world’s first people to pre-order and eventually receive the unnamed 5G-enabled BlackBerry handset, but also “provide input to directly influence product features and functionality.”
Of course, if the phone’s design, features, and functionality can still be “driven” and directly influenced by prospective buyers, that means very few things about this bad boy have so far been locked and etched in stone.
