Looks like the bad news keeps rolling on in for BlackBerry. T-Mobile announced that it would stop carrying the Canadian company’s smartphones in its US stores. If you want them, you’ll have to get it directly from the manufacturer, or you could try any of the other carriers.
Not surprisingly, T-Mobile’s decision has to do with “drastically weakening smartphone sales”. And with BlackBerry shifting away from the consumer market and into the enterprise, it’s fitting that they leave the retail store. Maybe this will open up more shelf space for Windows Phones.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
