The first blow that kept Blackberry unbalance was when Whatsapp discontinue supports for Blackberry devices few months ago, this affected their market share and caused Blackberry to go through so many pressure by producing her first Android-powered device in 2015 called Priv.
The Blackberry Priv failed the company, failed the city and failed her customers; hence T-Mobile, one of the largest retail store in the US have stopped the sale of Blackberry Priv, AT&T one of blackberry Allie also backing out.
CEO John Chen said in October that the company would exit the smartphone business, which has been on life support for years.
And now, Etisalat have discontinued Blackberry Internet Services also known as BIS subscriptions. Here is the message they sent to their Blackberry subscribers.
“Dear Customer, our BB service will no longer be available. You will continue to enjoy your current subscription till it expires. Thank you for choosing Etisalat”
I expect MTN, Airtel and Glo to follow suite. If you are still using a Blackberry Phone, this is a final opportunity to upgrade your device to iPhone or any Android devices now that Black Friday is around the corner.
