Bye Bye Blackberry: Blackberry has announced that their phones are not using Android software and would stop functioning from this month. BlackBerry will be sorely missed by many. Some stars who’ve used BlackBerrys include President Barack Obama, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Lindsay Lohan, etc.
Holding a Blackberry was considered a status symbol for many across the world including India. Was treated as a serious phone for corporate leaders it was never considered as phone for young people and this was the basic reason it failed to catch up with changing trends in mobile market.
Recently, Kim Kardashian, who has been a vocal fan of Blackberry for many years, posted on her social media account about her beloved BlackBerry breaking down. “Sooo my blackberry bold died. I can’t find anymore on eBay. I knew this day would come & to be honest I’m prepared. But the question is … Do I try a different kind of blackberry? Or ditch it all together? Or a different phone like Samsung?” the Selfish author, 35, tweeted on August 4. “I need 2 phones. Because I love having 2 different phone services so I always have a working phone.”
On the last day of Blackberry, internet was flooded with “Thank you memories”. Even though more sophisticated phones became available over time, people continued to adore the reliable old BlackBerrys. The phones were known for their stellar physical keyboards.After the vintage phones were discontinued, many users took to social media to bid them farewell. Most of themhave stopped using BlackBerry mobile phone a few years ago, but still sad to see its official end.
