Our new Mobility Solutions strategy is showing signs of momentum, including our first major device software licensing agreement with a telecom joint venture in Indonesia. Under this strategy, we are focusing on software development, including security and applications. The company plans to end all internal hardware development and will outsource that function to partners. This allows us to reduce capital requirements and enhance return on invested capital.

End of an era, but not exactly unexpected. This leaves the Priv as the only - ad probably last - modern keyboard smartphone, which is really, really too bad.

I'll believe it when I see it. I was actually hoping for them to release the codename "Mercury" phone and thinking of swapping for it as it's got a more compact candybar form factor than the Priv. But we'll see... at the beginning of the year the rumors were for it to be released in Q3 2016, now the rumors say Q1 2017, who knows when/if it will actually materialize.
