Since no deal has been made for BlackBerry’s buyout and no deal is on the horizon either, the Canadians are said to be going about their business as usual, working on follow-up devices for the Z30 and Q10 despite sales numbers looking horrendous.
The rumor about BlackBerry Z30’s US release timeline from back September may have been off by a month or so, but the biggest and baddest BB device ever has at long last landed on Verizon earlier today.
Following months of rumors and leaks, the latest addition to BlackBerry’s smartphone lineup, the BlackBerry Z30, has been officially announced.
As Samsung and Apple look stronger and stronger in the smartphone market’s top two spots and other Android-focused OEMs continue to make important strides (mainly Sony, LG, Huawei and ZTE), it doesn’t seem like Nokia and BlackBerry will get many more chances to up their game.
Despite being one of the earliest supporters of BlackBerry’s gesture-based smartphone OS, T-Mobile is reportedly looking to stop selling BlackBerry 10 phones in its stores.
Remember when BlackBerry (or as it was known back in the day, RIM) was considered the unsinkable, unbreakable flagship of the sea world consisting of smarter or dumber phones? The memory is all that’s left of those times, with BB now looking like a shabby rubber raft, threatened by the quietest of winds.
BlackBerry’s upcoming flagship, the Z30, has already been revealed in official renders before and now there are leaked images that showcase how big the device is next to the Z10 and the Q5.
Well, what do you know. Despite recent struggles and ominous projections, BlackBerry is going forward with plans of new smartphones based on the BB 10 operating system.
