It is perhaps to no one’s surprise. After all the BlackBerry DTEK50, and the DTEK60 as well, were made by Alcatel. Now the two companies are just making things official and public. BlackBerry and Alcatel parent company TCL has announced the signing of a deal that fully brings a chapter in BlackBerry’s history to a close. BlackBerry will simply be licensing its software and brand to TCL, who will the design, make, and sell BlackBerry-branded smartphones, which pretty much makes it the exclusive BlackBerry hardware partner.
