It looks as though BlackBerry is close to giving up on the mobile market, today revealing that they have killed the BB10 mobile operating system.
CEO of BlackBerry John Chen revealed this in an interview with The National, stating that BlackBerry will continue to support BB10 for owners of existing devices for a minimum of two more years.
However, from today it will no longer be including the operating system on future devices.
Instead of this, it will be using the Android operating system, the first of which was the BlackBerry Priv, which Chen also talked about in the interview.
“The fact that we came out with a high-end phone [as our first Android device] was probably not as wise as it should have been, a lot of enterprise customers have said to us, ‘I want to buy your phone but $700 is a little too steep for me. I’m more interested in a $400 device’.”
“We’re the only people who really secure Android, taking the security features of BlackBerry that everyone knows us for and make it more reachable for the market.”
