The leadership at Blackberry continues to amaze me with its inability to turn the company around. They’ve been at the very least risk adverse at a time when they should have been making brazen moves in order to regain even a slimmer of market share. Now it seems that they’ve completely thrown in the towel when it comes to the mobile hardware market as they’ve sold global rights to the Blackberry brand to Chinese manufacturer TCL.
The mobile pickings in the US are very slim – iOS or Android; just like our 2-party political system. We really need a third option. Hopefully, there’ll be new competition that will totally disrupt the mobile market.
