Blackberry pulls two models

Written by Nick Farrell



And not in a good way

Troubled mobile phone outfit BlackBerry is to kill off plans to launch two models which it thinks that no one will want. The company wrote off just shy of $1 billion in unsold mobiles in the third quarter of the last financial year, and lost a total of $2 billion.

The two phones will never see the light of day were low-cost phones aimed at emerging markets. Blackberry is apparently worried they will just add to the number of useless phones stashed in its warehouses. It is part of a lot of cost cutting that Blackberry has been doing lately.

Foxconn will make a device, codenamed Jakarta, in April. BlackBerry still has some high-end mobiles in the works too. According to the source, devices codenamed Ontario and Windermere are on the way.
