What could be the first fruits of BlackBerry's recently announced handset partnership with Foxconn could have emerged on a specifications website.
The BlueTooth SIG, which keeps a log of approved BlueTooth devices has listed a new device running on the BlackBerry OS, but not manufactured by BlackBerry.
Instead, the record shows that the handset, codenamed STJ100-1 is being manufactured by FIH CO LTD, which is the shorthand for Foxconn International Holdings.
Nothing is known about the device, other than it will be running on the BlackBerry OS 10.2, and naturally, will come with support for the BlueTooth protocol.
