Blackberry is basically dead. As of today, the company has announced it will plan on phasing out their consumer products and focus entirely on marketing phones to businesses. This comes after a truly abysmal year for the firm, with a net loss of $125 million over the past year. Blackberry isn't even competing well with the iPhone in its home market in Ontario.
When it comes to battling Android and Apple, Blackberry has given up. According to the new CEO a turnaround at the company would require "substantial change." While the CEO says Blackberry needs to "focus on our strengths," he doesn't describe what those strenths are. In fact, while the company used to be known for their security, but even government agencies that require discretion and privacy are turning to Apple and Android for their employee phones.
