Blackberry not giving up on smartphones

Blackberry says it will continue to be a smartphone brand, after announcing it would end in-house development of devices.

Alex Thurber, who is in charge of devices at the company, told the BBC that a new handset featuring a physical keyboard would be released within six months.

He said there was demand for such a device, despite falling sales at the firm.
