What next for blackberry??
It’s been turbulent in the past few weeks for smartphone marker blackberry. Many people would not know that the started the making smartphones main stream before most of the other tech companies started their own line of smartphone. Blackberry recently released their quarterly report which showed that they recorded losses again.
Things have not been good for the Candian-based company in the past months as Facebook the most used social media platform worldwide dropped support for their devices, Whatsapp would end support for Blackberry phones by the end of this year except something extraordinary happens before the end of the year even Snapchat doesn’t on the Blackberry 10. It would interesting how they react to facebook dropping support and what the alternative for Whatsapp would be.
Reports show that even the Blackberry Priv sales couldn’t save the company financial performance as sales have not been encouraging and sources say that the price for the Andriod powered Priv would be reduced in a bid to increase sales.
The chairman thinks the company is doing well based on their new business structure which focuses on software business.
I hope to see what new product, app, or software blackberry would introduce to the market that would take it back to the glory days when they had a segment of the smartphone market which seems to now be dominated by iPhone and Samsung, maybe they would sell the Blackberry messenger which I think is impossible when they already acquired Good technology in September 2015 for their software and general business development.
I hope their new business strategy under CEO John Chang yield positive results in the years to come.
