In a move that may or may not surprise you at this point in the game, Blackberry has announced that they will no longer be making their own phones. Instead, they will focus on security and software products and outsource the manufacturing of Blackberry branded devices to third-parties. We've already seen a product of this plan with the DTEK 50, which was basically a rebranded Alcatel Idol 4. If you were surprised by this news, estimates claim that Blackberry held only .1% of the market in the second quarter, selling just over 400,000 units. It's a bold move. While Blackberry's software has been known for years as being secure and the top choice for businesses and governments until recent years, for many, that software went hand-in-hand with their hardware. However, it's safe to say that this move won't count Blackberry in or out of the mobile market either way. Rather, it will shift their focus to what some would say they do best, software development. They've already made the Blackberry Hub available to all Android Marshmallow (and above) devices and are working on products for IoT (Internet of Things) devices. Whether we'll see an influx of people walking around with Blackberry devices remains to be seen, but it's certain that we'll still see their name in apps and software on other devices, at least in the near future.
