It’s been revealed that there could be a BlackBerry sale as there are currently discussions surrounding the future of their smartphone business.
A BlackBerry sale committee has been put together by BlackBerry to develop a plan to increase sales and put BlackBerry back at the forefront of the smartphone market. One possible option on the table is for the company to be sold in its entirety.
BlackBerry 10 was released back in January, after many delays and 2 years after the last BlackBerry release. This delay gave iOS and Android a headstart in the evolving smartphone market and has seen the two competitors remain at the top. BlackBerry 10 sales are low and the markets down, the company reported a £54 million loss in the last quarter.
The outcome of the current talks could see BlackBerry up for sale.
