"We count the Middle East as one of the best regions not in terms of how many units we sell but also how much the BlackBerry brand resonates with customers", said Mr Mahieu. The company is all set to jump in the race of bezel-less screens and launch BlackBerry Ghost. He revealed to The Verge this week that BlackBerry devices - all models, not just the newest BlackBerry KeyOne flagship - achieved just 850,000 shipments for the whole of 2017.
Over the past year, there have been a few BlackBerry handsets that came to market. The image also reveals rounded sides and corners for the Ghost with the device as a whole being quite slim as well. For BlackBerry Mobile, building channel relationships and making BlackBerry handsets available was an important part of their strategy. He further added that the smartphone will be made by Optiemus Infracom. Blass in a tweet on Monday said Optiemus would soon release the bazel-less phone into the Indian market. That is not a statement that many would expect from BlackBerry Mobile a year after the launch of the BlackBerry KeyOne.

The mace is a symbol of excellence and a recognition of the side's outstanding performance in the purest format of the game. On a personal front, this is an important series for Raina, who is also aiming to return to One-Day International cricket.
On the other hand, this might be because BlackBerry is using a different metric to decide whether the sales were a success or not. That's not a huge number, but it's also not too bad considering we're talking about a phone in 2017 that has a physical keyboard. The telecom entered into a licensing agreement with BlackBerry previous year.
It is not clear if Ghost is the phone's codename or if it will be launched with some other name. BlackBerry's new mission is to now inform people that they can have all their favorite apps on a BlackBerry phone.
