BlackBerry Gives Up To Its Own Operating System And Focuses On Android

BlackBerry, the Canadian company which once was the leader of smartphones on the market, announced that it will give up to its won operating system BlackBerry 10 and it will focus on Android.

John Chen, the executive chief of the company, suggested in the past that it will be forced to make this move if BlackBerry fails to capitalize the hardware division.

The company will focus on the operating system which is the leader on the market, and will try to develop “the safest Android smartphone for the enterprise segment”.

According to some rumors, BlackBerry is preparing two mid-range Android devices. Launched in late 2015, BlackBerry PRIV, the first phone with Android from the company’s portfolio, had modest sales because of the high price.

“The fact that we came out on the market with a high-end device maybe it wasn’t a wise decision. A lot of company clients have told us they want to buy our phone, but 700 dollars a price too high. They are more interested in a $400 device”, said Chen for National newspaper.

BlackBerry announced that it has sold 600,00 smartphones in the first three months of the year, way below the 850,000 units resulted in company’s analysts.
