BlackBerry’s revised roadmap for 2014 doesn’t include any more devices. The low-end Z3 it launched a few months back has performed well in emerging markets. In September the company followed up with the high-end BlackBerry Passport which is actually exceeding expectations as far as sales are concerned. In a few weeks time the Classic will also go on sale, a $450 device aimed at BB loyalists. What’s next for the company? Apparently […]
