Why BlackBerry crashed and burn in hardware

Exit is the best decision for struggling vendor.

BlackBerry is the latest former smartphone leader to call time on its participation in the increasingly commoditised market with Motorola selling itself to Google in 2011, before being sold on to Lenovo in 2014.

Meanwhile, Nokia’s handset business was sold to Microsoft in 2014 and this has since been broken up and sold on again.
