blackberry has passed through advance hell this year alone ranging from Whatsapp divorce, Facebook divorce, low turnover etc. But now Blackberry finally nailed Blackberry Classic into a permanent coffin that no amount of prayer and fasting can make it resurrect again.
In the words of Ralph Pini, Chief Operating Officer & General Manager for Devices at BlackBerry Ltd,
“Sometimes it can be very tough to let go… To keep innovating and advancing our portfolio, we are updating our smartphone lineup with state of the art devices. As part of this, and after many successful years in the market, we will no longer manufacture BlackBerry Classic.”
For many years, Classic (and its BBOS predecessors) has been in our portfolio. It has been an incredible workhorse device for customers, exceeding all expectations. But, the Classic has long surpassed the average lifespan for a smartphone in today’s market.
This is one honest goodbye to Blackberry classic and BB10 will only receive update… As we get set to usher in state of the art Blackberry Android OS later this year.
#Goodbye #BlackberryBold #BB10! #RIP!
