Blackberry CEO John Chen has made an official statement on the future of BlackBerry 10, the company’s own Operating System. This announcement came as a result of the company’s earlier statement at CES, that its future products will be run solely on Android Operating system. This raised concerns and questions, if the Canadian based company was totally stopping any further development of the BlackBerry 10 operating system.
CEO John Chen took to the BlackBerry blog to inform the public that software development on BB 10 will go on. According to him,
“The coming version 10.3.3 will be certified for NIAP compliance, meaning it will have passed the strictest government-grade security tests, enabling us to further support our government and regulated customers who use BlackBerry 10 devices and demand the highest levels of security. We are also planning a version 10.3.4 for later this year with even more security improvements”.
“While we continue to invest in BlackBerry 10 in 2016, we will also develop another Android-based phone. We’ll share more details about our roadmap when we’re ready”.
BlackBerry die hard fans should be rest assured that BB 10 OS will still be produced and improved upon. Furthermore, we should all be expecting another android phone from the company. Hopefully, it will make more sales than the Priv and relaunch the company onto world mobile market center stage.
