BlackBerry phones with proprietary OS stopped working forever

Published

on

BlackBerry has hammered the final nail into the coffin of their legacy devices. As announced back in September last year (there was also a warning a few days ago), from today the company no longer provides services for devices with BlackBerry 7.1 OS and earlier versions of the proprietary operating system, as well as BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1.

All BlackBerry devices with legacy software will no longer be able to perform even basic functions such as making phone calls, sending text messages, or even calling 911. Users will also not be able to access the Internet via Wi-Fi or their carrier’s mobile networks.

Applications such as BlackBerry Link, BlackBerry Desktop Manager, BlackBerry World, BlackBerry Protect, BlackBerry Messenger, and BlackBerry Blend are no longer available. It should be added that BlackBerry devices running the Android operating system have not yet been affected (these are BlackBerry KeyOne, Key2 and Key2 LE).

BlackBerry, which dominated the US market before Apple released the iPhone in 2007, is now primarily a “cybersecurity company.” Just months after TCL announced the BlackBerry Key2 LE, BlackBerry completed its acquisition of artificial intelligence cybersecurity company Cylance for $ 1.4 billion.

There are more than 500 million users of Xiaomi smartphones in the world. The company joined Samsung and Apple

There are more than 500 million users of Xiaomi smartphones

According to the analytical company Counterpoint Research, there are already more than 500 million smartphone users in the world of the Chinese company Xiaomi, which has joined the club where Samsung and Apple already belong.

Theoretically, Xiaomi’s large user base could further develop the company’s brand if products meet or exceed expectations. It may also give Xiaomi more opportunities to monetize traffic on its smartphones and allow the company to effectively sell IoT devices, headphones, smartwatches and other gadgets.

2021 was a very successful year for the company, with users actively buying smartphones. Xiaomi’s successful global expansion is particularly noticeable in India and Europe, where it became one of the top three OEMs in the first quarter of 2022. In India, the company leads the market with 23% of the market, and in China it is in fifth place.

The average revenue per user (ARPU) of Xiaomi in China is much higher than other regional markets, with ARPU for premium smartphones higher than for lower-end smartphones. This partly explains the strategic importance of the Chinese segment of the premium smartphone market, although demand seems weak at the moment. The additional profit and revenue from Chinese premium smartphone users could help Xiaomi further subsidize overseas sales channels, expand into new countries and launch global marketing campaigns.

According to Xiaomi, more than 80% of internet service revenue comes from China, with the main contributor being advertising.

The iPhone 15 could do what Jobs wanted to see

According to numerous rumors, the iPhone 15 line of smartphones may be the first Apple models in which the company will abandon the slot for conventional SIM cards. That is, they will completely switch to eSIM. As it turned out, Apple wanted to abandon the SIM even in the very first iPhone.

The iPhone 15 could do what Jobs wanted to see in the very first iPhone.  It's about the lack of a SIM card slot.

According to former Apple CEO Tony Fadell, Steve Jobs wanted to release the first iPhone without a SIM card slot. Of course, then there was no talk of any eSIM in its modern form. It’s just that Jobs liked the concept of the iPhone without SIM cards, and it could be realized by switching completely to CDMA networks. However, Fadell dissuaded Jobs from this idea, showing statistics according to which, the distribution of CDMA left much to be desired. Later, Apple did release a CDMA-enabled iPhone for Verizon, but that was just a modification.

Now, more than 15 years later, Jobs’ original concept may be fully realized. True, eSIM does not work in all countries, so Apple will have to continue to release iPhones with SIM card slots.
