BlackBerry’s struggle in the smartphone market
It is no secret BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) has been failing to capture the ever-changing smartphone market. Thanks to competition from the likes of Apple and Samsung, the Canadian tech company can’t seem to catch a break no matter how many new smartphones the company releases. The new BlackBerry P’9983 takes on the classic style it was initially known for but this time, the device was enhanced with premium materials. This may or may not help the company successfully reclaim a place in the market.
BlackBerry fans will likely appreciate the high-end appearance the P’9983 smartphone features. Such a phone could have an edge against competition if enough demand is shown.
