BlackBerry has confirmed it will be rolling out a device this year that uses its old-school BB7 platform.
The news came directly from CEO Thorsten Heins, who was speaking at a shareholder meeting.
Although he didn’t serve up details, it appears Heins was talking about the BlackBerry Bold 9720, which has been leaked extensively across the web.
The move appears to be an attempt to keep fans of older BlackBerry devices on side.
While the newer BlackBerry 10 platform has received rave reviews, and its Z10 has sold relatively well, BlackBerry is still a long way off competing in the smartphone space.
Heins also told shareholders that the company would only ever sell six handsets at any given time, allowing it to concentrate on serving up a decent roster of devices.
