Until a few years ago, BlackBerry set trends in the mobile phone market, and devices with a physical QWERTY keyboard were unique. However, this is a thing of the past, and BlackBerry currently means virtually nothing on the smartphone market and its market share is negligible. No wonder the company is getting rid of its patents. This information came to light after talking to a person directly related to BlackBerry.
In the United States, the transaction concerning the purchase of 90 patents developed by BlackBerry has been confirmed. The buyout was made by Huawei. Most of the patents purchased by the Chinese company cover topics related to security and protection in phones. It is very likely that in the nearest future BlackBerry will sell more of its patents. At the moment, the company plans to focus on creating software applications.
