Blackberry is having a tough time promoting their latest BB 10 operating system. A new report suggests that T-Mobile may stop selling Blackberry Z10 and Q10 devices in its stores due to poor sales. The company was one of the early adopters of the OS, but it appears as if it didn’t turned out to be the way they supposed it will.
According to a T-Mobile employee who goes by the name of Dierre on Crackberry forums,
My manager told me the other day that all blackberry 10 devices will now be only available via direct ship. I work at a corporate store in Cleveland I have to go check the Email but I’m not sure if this has just affected NorthEast Ohio.
If the carrier stops selling Blackberry OS 10 device in its stores, there is a high probability that the Canadian manufacturer will lose its market share to other operating systems. It is already lagging behind Android and iOS, and it seems as if Windows Phone will gain the most followers from Blackberry’s failure.
Blackberry’s board is exploring different strategies to help the company put an end to its problems. One alternative is to make Blackberry Messenger a separate entity while others include selling off the company to any big technology giant. Rumors suggest that a group of employees started working on BBM Inc. to bring other features to the popular messaging app.
There are rumors going around that Blackberry is working on a new device codenamed Blackberry Aristo that will feature a 5-inch display and will be crowned as the fastest Blackberry device. Anyway, if you are a T-Mobile user looking for a Blackberry device, it is better to confirm with a T-Mobile store in your area before paying them a visit.
