it officially said that blackberry would not produce BB10 Phones anymore focused on Android

While BlackBerry first gained it’s access into the Nigerian marketplace, it was a hot cake even though the fees were outrageous. I imply, blackberry changed into the talk of the metropolis and anyone who could find the money for the device at the time, had the coins.


At the time, I recall the Curve 2 was selling for over a hundred thousand Naira. Same curve 2 you wouldn’t find in the market now. Even if you should, it’d be from someone and not the market.
When people became conscious of the fact that the blackberry phones of that time were a set back especially with the frequent hanging and lagging, BlackBerry
decided to start producing BB10 phones m running BB10 OS which is completely different from the former. In terms of design, features and functionality.


Soon, BlackBerry incorporated the ability to directly download and install some android apps on the BB10 phones in a bid to making it’s devices relevant as
developers were majorly developing apps for android and iOS platforms.
All efforts, although very encouraging, didn’t seem to buy the hearts of most mobile users as the android OS was leading the chart.
Sometime last year, BlackBerry decided to go with the trend by launching it’s first android smartphone . Although the device got a lot of attention, it didn’t do so well (in
terms of sales) as expected as a result of the pricing.

All of these, I guess, has made BlackBerry officially announce that it’s preventing production of blackberry 10
phones and specializing in android phones.
In a current interview with Gulf information, John Chen certainly said they’d assist the bb10 OS for a minimal
of two years earlier than probably backing up. His statement
reads thus.

“We will support BB10 for minimum two years as a lot of governments are using it, such as Canada, the U.S, Germany and UK.”.



BlackBerry based on previous report, said it’d be producing two mid-range android phones this year nicknamed as ROME and HAMBURG; one having
a full touchscreen like the traditional android phone and the other having a physical keyboard as seen on the PRIV.
