Less Is More! Blackberry Is Going On A Phone Diet!

I am guessing that the impressive iPhone sales for Q3 has opened the eyes of many.
Yesterday, John Chen, Blackberry’s CEO confirmed in an interview with Fox news that they are planning on slashing the number of devices they release yearly.  According to John Chen, “Traditionally, we make four phones a year. We are not going to do that anymore. We are going to at least cut it down to a lot less number, maybe two, maybe one.”

When you consider brands like Samsung, LG and don’t forget the king of them all – Tecno who flood the market with at least 4-6 device variants a year and companies like Apple who only puts out 2 devices yearly at most and their latest earning reports, one can easily tell which brand influenced Blackberry’s decisions.

However, we all know that Apple has carved out a special market for themselves and Blackberry isn’t Apple plus with their plans on making an Android device, don’t you think the strategy should be Attack and conquer?
What are your thoughts?

        bro…..do u think BB as a company would be proud dat their only place of relevance is a 3rd world nation? They will gladly trade dis love dey have in naija for countries like d U.S, China or Europe if they had d chance. Windows phone has more global market share than BB. Now that’s not nice 🙁
