Despite the emergence of the blackberry 10 operating system, blackberry phone sale is still dwindling; uptake has been slow limited to its existing high end customers (not so large) upgrading their old phones.

Many of its low-end customers(in large numbers) with older devices from emerging markets in developing countries are still unable to benefit from the new operating system due to its demand on hardware.

As such, impact on sales of the blackberry 10 in these economies only slowed down and did not reverse the rapid contraction of its market share.

Suffice to say, the Canadian tech giant Blackberry (once dubbed by users as crackberry) has formed a special board committee to explore its strategic options, which could ultimately result in a sale.
