BlackBerry may stop making handsets

This is John Chen, the CEO of RIM. RIM as you know makes the very successful BlackBerry handsets. According to this article here, it seems that BlackBerry, or RIM in this case, might be exiting the smartphone market. It has not been an easy ride for them to be honest. They were king a few years ago but Apple and Samsung made sure that the sales of its handsets and software was hit very badly. Apparently, according to the article, he said that if he could not make money on selling handsets, it would be better to exit the market. So it is looking for small acquisitions as investments. To be honest, that might be the way to go for RIM. I still like BlackBerry to be honest. Their BBM or BlackBerry Messenger is still one of my favourite messaging platforms. Oh well. Let us see how it goes.
