Blackberry - Chinese company TCL buys global rights to BlackBerry phone brand

Esato Forums - Manufacturer Discussion : Blackberry - mobile.esato.com
BlackBerry has signed over (mostly) global rights to use its branding on phones to Chinese manufacturer TCL. The news follows an announcement by the Canadian company in September that it would stop making its own phones and concentrate instead on services and software.

Under the terms of the agreement, TCL will “design, manufacture, sell, and provide customer support for BlackBerry-branded mobile devices,” while BlackBerry will chip in with the software and services. The deal is being touted as “global,” but there are some limitations: it won’t apply in Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India, or Indonesia. According to Bloomberg, this is because Blackberry already has a licensing agreement in place in Indonesia, and is currently working on another deal with an Indian company.
