TCL to bring smartphone with eye verification technology to India

TCL to bring smartphone with eye verification technology to India

BlackBerry, the smartphone making company which was being considered as leader in the market, is now within the influx of competitors like Apple and Samsung.

BlackBerry is looking to expand its handset business this fiscal year and turn it into a revenue-generating one, according to the company's Chief Executive Officer John Chen.

Leaks and rumors for the devices codenamed, "Hamburg" and "Rome" have been circulating around the web for a while now. However, he is still confident that BlackBerry can still profit from its device business. Today's piece of news is that the next BlackBerry Hamburg will be built by TCL, a Chinese company that manufactures Alcatel-branded smartphones. A Wi-Fi Alliance certificate (that's since disappeared) attributed the model number STH100-2 - believed to be the Hamburg - with TCL, causing us all to scratch our heads about what BlackBerry actually does these days.

Texas father charged after baby's hot vehicle death
The warrant goes on to state that Thedford told officers he called his wife and 911 while trying to perform CPR on the child. Michael Thedford, an unemployed teacher who subs at a nearby high school, was arrested and charged with manslaughter.

It remains to be seen whether BlackBerry will eventually manage to regain some of its lost glory, as the company still seems to be sailing murky waters for now. Prior to this, a certain BlackBerry Hamburg was spotted online but we still did not know when the phone could be announced, or at least until now where we might have a clue as to when.

In any case, we will not k now for sure what happens until the company releases the phones next month. We feel that the Hamburg will just be another Android phone in the sea of nearly a million other handsets, which would keep the competition tough. It has also remained as a strong source of revenue for the company. As a reminder, TCL makes handsets under the Alcatel brand, and that purported partnership with BlackBerry allegedly involved producing handsets under the BlackBerry brand as well.
