New Blackberry patent suggests some kind of authentication tech on keyboard
Blackberry has already closed down is hardware division and the Canadian OEM is now looking to intensify their efforts in the region of software only but that has not meant that they would totally ditch the making of phones.
If anything is to suggest that they are still into this business, it is the fact that the BB DTEK60 is yet to launch and the earlier news we brought you about another of their own trademark devices in the works – the Blackberry Mercury.
When we say trademark, you should have already known that we mean this one carries all of the things that the BB mobile device stand for, right up from the custom build to the physical keyboard that they seem to have fallen in love with and the news today deals on that keyboard which might work as something more this year.
Just obtaining a patent, the details of this patent shows that BB might be looking to introduce some sort of security and better authentication feature into the physical keyboard of this device which would be an added badge to them in terms of the mobile security that they have come to be known for.
This way, the keyboard of the device would be touch sensitive and while this is just still a ruse, it would be nice to see something of such launch in the Mercury if that would be the name they stick with.
