TCL Communication and BlackBerry Limited have announced an end to their partnership to produce BlackBerry phones. TCL made several BlackBerry phones in recent years, which ran Android with additional software from BlackBerry Limited. TCL will not introduce any additional BlackBerry phones, and will stop selling existing models at the end of August 2020. It will provide service and support for those phones until the end of August 2022. TCL made four BlackBerry models: The KEYone, KEY2, and KEY2 LE had physical QWERTY keyboards, while the Motion was a touchscreen-only device.

This is very sad as the Key2 is an excellent phone and my wife LOVES her's and would have bought a sequel too. I hope BlackBerry tries to come back and make really good Android-based phones with keyboards again, or licenses to someone else...

Put a fork in it, they were done long ago...
