BlackBerry is no more a worthy brand in India. Yes, BlackBerry has had a decent market share in the Indian handset market over the last year. Despite having Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor as brand ambassador, BlackBerry has failed to pick in.
The failure of BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 is the real cause of failure. Industry insiders believe that the pricing of BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 messed up everything, especially, in India. Few months back, BlackBerry tried to bring more affordable BB 10 OS powered - BB Q5. Well, the phone was launched at Rs 24,990, but it also worked against BlackBerry's expectation.
Now BlackBerry's board is keen to sell-off the company by November. The tech vendor is expecting $1bilion Q2 loss, and will cut 4,500 jobs.
