BlackBerry CEO John Chen confirms two new mid range Android devices.

BlackBerry has been loosing it for a while now and by the end of this year it’ll loose it’s Facebook and WhatApp support. Of course i am talking about BB10 Os and below.
BlackBerry is setting it’s focus on Android now and they hope to release two mid- range phones within the year where one will be fully touchscreen while the other will have a physical keypad.
Mr Chen admitted that the Priv “was too high-end a product”, with its target market of enterprise customers put off by the handset’s US$700 price tag.
“The fact that we came out with a high end phone (as our first Android device) was probably not as wise as it should have been,”

“A lot of enterprise customers have said to us, ‘I want to buy your phone but $700 is a little too steep for me. I’m more interested in a $400 device’.”
Mr Chen insisted that BlackBerry’s secure Android handset proposition was one that appealed particularly to enterprise consumers.
“We’re the only people who really secure Android, taking the security features of BlackBerry that everyone knows us for and make it more reachable for the market.”
“Since I started at the company (in November 2013) I’ve been saying I’ll make the handset business profitable.
“If I can’t make it profitable because the market won’t let me, then I’ll get out of the handset business,” he said.
“I love our handset business, but we need to make money.”
BlackBerry will continue to roll out updates for BB10 but will not anytime soon make new devices with the OS.
