BlackBerry has announced that it will discontinue offering significant services for its existing devices in 2022. On 4th January, the long-reigning monarch of mobile phones, at last, received a standing funeral along with a mourn from all those who have still been using it.
- Announcement: BlackBerry has announced that it will discontinue offering significant services for its existing devices in 2022. As per Mashable, from January 4, the business`s smartphones will be without provisioning services. It will be unable to connect to networks, including the mobile phone network, as a result of this.
- Work-centric: A few years back, BlackBerry’s keyboard-centric designs had led to high demand, especially among business workers who relied on BlackBerry services that provide a high degree of confidentiality and anonymity.
- First touchscreen: BlackBerry may not do much as smartphones continue to change with the introduction of the first touchscreen phone. Although Android phones – which at one time resembled inexpensive BlackBerry knockoffs – shifted their focus to touch screen interface, the introduction of the first iPhone shook up the industry.
- Off guard: BlackBerry, on the other hand, was caught off guard. It disputed that on-screen keyboards were rising in popularity and instead relied on the services that businesspeople were realistically reliant on. As a result, it took at least a year for the company to release the first-ever touchscreen phone.
- Goodbye: It’s difficult to believe that some individuals are still using ancient BlackBerry phones. BlackBerry, on the other hand, is ready to say goodbye if there are still some users. BlackBerry has stated on its FAQ website that it would no longer respond to provisioning updates to its handsets.
