Now even Canada drops Blackberry phones


Blackberry’s best markets were actually in emerging markets, but their other western stronghold has been in Canada, where they had the home-field advantage.

Unfortunately for the stumbling company, which only had 0.6% worldwide market share in Q4 2013, their handsets have become unwelcome even in their home town. We have seen this earlier, when Rogers initially declined to carry the Blackberry Z30, and now Canadian carrier Fido has completely dropped Blackberry’s range from their line up, offering only iPhone, Android and Windows Phone smartphones.

The clarity of the line up is certain to help Windows Phone, when the OS will be positioned as an undisputed alternative to iOS and Android.
