Hot off the heels of the BlackBerry Passport being revealed and made available last week, the smartphone manufacturer is now making plans for their next few devices. This includes a follow up to the Passport and still unavailable Classic.
Reuters reported this week that CEO John Chen has plans to release at least one unconventional device every year. He says that he relishes in the “wow factor” from customers, and promises that not all devices released will be outside of the design box.
There aren’t any details on how these follow up devices will look, but Chen states that the company will address the criticisms that the Passport is difficult to use with one hand.
“Given the receptivity for the Passport, I know that we’ll have at least another generation of that device,” said Chen. “I also carry very high hopes for the Classic, and I’ve spoken with a lot of people that want it … so I think we will have another iteration on that, and there will be a new concept device too.”
On top of that, BlackBerry is already making plans to reveal some of these phones at Mobile World Congress in 2015.
