End of an era as Blackberry stops making phones
« on: September 28, 2016, 09:16:23 PM »
After 14 years in the mobile phone business, embattled maker Blackberry has announced that it is no longer going to design its own smartphones.

The company, which is famed for its "Qwerty" keyboard mobile phones that were the choice handset for professionals, has been struggling to keep up with market leaders Apple and Samsung as the world has moved to touchscreens.

As a result, the loss-making business said it is going to focus on creating software for mobile phones, rather than the devices themselves. Instead, it will outsource the brand to other manufacturers.

Nakakalungkot na balita naman ito. Fan ako ng Blackberry QWERTY since hayskul pa, naaalala ko noon pag mayron ka sa eskwela nun, RICHKIDZ ka. Hanggang sa nagtrabaho ako sa kol senter inissue-han ako ng 9650 (Verizon Unit)  Hanggang ngayon blackberry parin gamit ko (Blackberry Z10) Full Touchscreen nga lang, LAB ko to, napaka handy gamitin.

RIP Beloved.  8-)

Nako napakalayo ko na sa panahong kapag may 3210 ka mayaman ka, siguro grade 5 palang ako nun.

Sana nga nag stay nalang sila kahit behind sila ng top phone brands ngayon, im sure maraming malulungkot sa balitang to.

And their software? Hindi eh, magi stay parin yan behind, talagang signature na yan only Just for their phones

Blackberry clings to physical keyboard with Android 'Mercury'

MANILA - Blackberry, the fallen king of smartphones, has launched the Android-powered Mercury, in another attempt to combine a touch-screen with its beloved physical keyboard.
The Mercury will be manufactured by TCL, the maker of Alcatel phones. The Waterloo, Canada-based company has licensed its phone brand to focus on software development.
Once a ubiquitous presence in the palms of businessmen Blackberry saw its market share decline as Apple's iPhone and handsets running on Google's Android operating system.
At the its peak, Blackberry fans included US President Barack Obama and reality television star Kim Kardashian.
Blackberry showcased the Mercury during the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Its metal frame and plastic antenna stripes borrows design cues from current Android flagships.
