iOS and Android are the two major platforms for any smartphone. Before there was OS named BLACKBERRY OS. But now blackberry is going to kill that OS as their market value is decreasing day by day. Launching an android phone or launching a phone which have android OS is basic strategies all OEM providers should have.
Blackberry CEO, John chen said in the interview with “The National” that they will support for 2 years for the existing users of blackberry OS. But as it stated it will not use its OS in the upcoming smartphone.
Even John Chen personally said that its previous android based smartphone was much expensive. And he got reviews from its customers.
“I like blackberry phones. But buying a 700$ phone is not pocket friendly. Rather I would buy a 400$ phone from blackberry.”
If they launch a smartphone under 400$. Seems they can drag customers. Reportedly blackberry was rumoured to launch two mid-range smartphone named “Hamburg by the autumn 2016 and “rome” by end of 2016.
John even said we will focus on android on all upcoming smart phones. In fact they will provides security of BB OS to its android powered smartphone.
So at last blackberry OS is going to end. Recent info said that Whatsapp is going to end its service to blackberry users.
SO what are your views? Comment below. So we can expect a blackberry device powered by android with blackberry OS security features.
