BlackBerry may have announced that it will no longer design its own smartphones, but that doesn t mean the iconic BlackBerry keyboard is dead just yet.

In fact, according to CEO John Chen, the company will be releasing a phone with the QWERTY keyboard at some point in the near future.

It s possible that the keyboard won t be exactly the same as the QWERTY keyboard we know and love from BlackBerry — while the company isn t developing its own hardware, it will still release phones developed by third parties.

It will be interesting to see if the company s phones retain that BlackBerry style.

We don t yet know when BlackBerry will release a new phone with a physical keyboard, so it could be anywhere from a few months to a few years before we see it.

It s certainly an end of an era for BlackBerry.
