Production for BlackBerry 10 smartphones stopped
by Usha Bhavani April 13, 2016
BlackBerry users have been predicting the death of BlackBerry 10 for quite some time, and Chen has now confirmed that there will be no further BB10 devices in the future. The company will continue to support the software and release updates for the next two years.
Speaking to the media – BlackBerry CEO and Chairman John Chen said that the company will now be focusing solely on its Android phones with the goal of producing “most secure Android smartphone for the enterprise.”
The company has stopped the production of BlackBerry 10 smartphones.
In his latest interview with Gulf News, Chen clearly stated: “We will support BB10 for minimum two more years as a lot of governments are using it, such as Canada, the U.S., Germany, and UK.”
He said that two more software updates for BB10 devices are due; this year and next year. He said BlackBerry will reassess the situation then, based on the level of security of its Android software.
“If we can make Android phone as secure as Blackberry 10, which will be difficult, but if we can make it then the two lines will merge,” Chen said. “If it doesn’t, then I have to look for an answer to the customer.”
