If you are a Blackberry Classic fan, then there’s bad news for you. BlackBerry is no longer going to manufacture Blackberry Classic Smartphone. The company had denied last week regarding the end of production of the BlackBerry 10 handsets to the Verizon and AT&T.
“These are the tenets that help keep us focused and the reasons why we are committed to the success of both BlackBerry 10 and Android devices. 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. We are ready for this change so we can give our customers something better – entrenched in our legacy in security and pedigree in making the most productive smartphones.”-Ralph Pini, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager for Devices, BlackBerry
BlackBerry’s recent shift of focus from its native OS to Android to increase its revenue is one of the reasons behind this decision.
