BlackBerry COO Beard: We never said that we would not build another BB10 device
The company is still selling BB10 powered devices like the BlackBerry Passport, the BlackBerry Classic (although manufacturing of the device has ended) and the BlackBerry Leap. Next month, BB 10.3.3 will start rolling out to BlackBerry 10 handsets, and another update is being scheduled for next year.
In Manhattan, BlackBerry has built a pop up store located at Brookfield Place in Battery Park. The kiosk offers unlocked versions of the BlackBerry Passport, BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition, BlackBerry Classic, BlackBerry Leap and the BlackBerry Priv. Each phone comes with a case and sync pod, a bundle available only from this location.
It's hard to see BlackBerry returning to BB10, but on the other hand the Priv hasn't been a big winner either. The BlackBerry Neon is rumored to be the next Android flavored 'Berry, reportedly a re-branded Alcatel Idol 4. Eventually, BlackBerry is going to have to decide whether using Android has been successful for it. If not, the company could trot out BlackBerry 10 hardware once again, or decide to leave that end of the business for good.
