Canadian company BlackBerry has announced that phones and tablets running its software will stop working from Tuesday, January 4th.
The company said in a statement on its official website that all devices that run on its BlackBerry 7.1 operating system and earlier versions, or BlackBerry 10, or the operating system of its BlackBerry PlayBook 2.1 tablet will not work from this date, whether Through a wireless network “Wi-Fi” or the Internet over the phone.
She confirmed that the services in the phone from making phone calls or sending text messages or using data will not be available in the old versions.
It is worth noting that BlackBerry tried to restart itself in 2013 using a new operating system, BlackBerry 10, but it failed, and in 2015 it switched to manufacturing Android devices, which also failed.
In 2016, BlackBerry began licensing its brand to third-party manufacturers such as TCL.
In 2020, the Texas company, Onward Mobility, said it would manufacture a BlackBerry device running Android with a 5G network, and equipped with a full QWERTY keyboard, to be launched in 2021, but the company did not fulfill its promise.
