BlackBerry is facing very tough time these days. The big QWERTY smartphone maker has already signed an intent letter for $4.7 billion buyout offer with Fairfax. And now the top 4th US carrier T-Mobile has planned to stop selling BlackBerry smartphones in its US retail stores amidst weak sales. 

T-Mobile EVP of corporate services, David Carey told Reuters, on Wednesday, that BlackBerry devices are not in high demand now. Hence "keeping stock in the retail distribution system was inefficient." The giant wireless service provider will directly ship the BlackBerry smartphones to customers instead of carrying these in its US retail stores

BlackBerry has already decided to stop the marketing of its smartphones a few days ago "because of drastically weakening smartphone sales." David Carey said that BlackBerry smartphones are not the choice of general customers. Instead businesses mostly purchased BlackBerry devices and these purchases are not done via stores. It is another reason to drop BlackBerry devices from retail stores.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
