A Senate memo has taken the news of stopping production on BlackBerry Classic to mean that all BlackBerry 10 devices will cease production, or as an excuse to buy themselves new iToy’s or Sam toys.
According to Fox Business:
BlackBerry responded by calling the Senate statement “incorrect,” and that it will keep updating BB10 as it supports new Android devices. BlackBerry claims that the Senate staff misunderstood the discontinuation of the Classic as the end of all BB10 devices. Nonetheless, the Senate apparently hasn’t changed its mind about replacing BlackBerries with iPhones and Samsung devices.
An article suggesting that this indicates an end to BB10 devices of course appeared in the Motley Fool, then picked up by Leo Sun of Fox Business.
The interesting part of this of course is the disclosure by the author:
