BlackBerry is BACK!
« on: April 11, 2018, 02:53:27 pm »
BlackBerry was pretty much out of the fight for a few years, but with TCL at the helm of the hardware ship, they are once again making pretty compelling hardware. The Passport was their big (emphasis on BIG) return to the physical keyboard and was followed up by the KEYone. Now they are following up the KEYone with the Athena. I've got a big of a soft-spot for physical keyboards and with a name like Athena, well, I'm sure it going to be great!

   The rear looks to be made from a different texture from the KEYone and you can also see that Athena will have dual camera sensors and an LED flash. Furthermore, the physical buttons like the power, volume rocker, and convenience key - have all been moved to one side. The Athena will still have a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type C, and downward firing speaker. While things look good, we still do not have any information about a release date or a price.Source: Neowin
