The news comes from Terry Gou, CEO of Foxconn who said: "We are working with them (BlackBerry) to design a new device, and we will showcase multiple devices at the trade show (MWC) in Barcelona in February,"


Foxconn signed a deal in December with BlackBerry to develop and produce new smartphones over the next five years. BlackBerry will supposedly target the rapidly growing smartphone market in Indonesia and other emerging markets such as Mexico.

The two companies will cooperate going forward, including 'mutual investments and global marketing'  calling the deal "a breakthrough in the global technology industry,"

Gou added that BlackBerry offers an 'excellent platform' with its BlackBerry 10 OS, with 'outstanding security features' but lacks strong manufacturing capability.

In addition to focusing on tapping the rapidly growing smartphone market in Indonesia, the two will make new devices for other emerging markets, including Mexico, Hon Hai said in a statement.

Apparently all those smartphones to be unveiled with one code named 
Jakarta , are budget devices made for emerging markets. No clues yet, if them will also arrive to  the USA and Europe.
