BlackBerry has announced that it's done with the smartphone business, as it won't be developing its own devices anymore. Instead, the Canadian company will embrace the same licensing strategy adopted by Nokia, it will sell the intellectual right and license the BlackBerry name to the company that wants it and has the money for it.

The company is already in talks with two major companies in China and India, which seem to compete head to head for the right to build and sell BlackBerry smartphones in the next year.

A decision hasn't been made yet, but we're expecting an official announcement by the end of the year or in early 2017.

Until then, BlackBerry plans to launch one more smartphone developed in-house, the long-rumored Mercury.

Before the DTEK60 made it to market, the Canadian company promised to release a QWERTY smartphone and even if in the meantime it decided to change its smartphone business model, that device will still make it to the shelves.

BlackBerry's CEO John Chen confirmed last month that the QWERTY smartphone that his company promised to its fans would eventually be announced and released on the market
