A breakup may be on the horizon for BlackBerry

Matt Hamblen | Oct. 8, 2013
Set to be acquired by Fairfax, BlackBerry says it will 'refocus' on its core enterprise business even as Gartner advises clients to ditch the vendor's products.

Analyst Ken Dulaney, author of the Gartner report, said he made the recommendation after clients raised concerns following the recent spate of bad news at BlackBerry.

Dulaney's report noted that, in a Gartner survey of 400 IT and business leaders in August (before the run of bad news), 42% of the respondents said they now use BlackBerry smartphones, but only 9% said they would still be using them in 2016.

Martyn Williams of the IDG News Service contributed to this story.
