BlackBerry's managing director in India, Narendra Nayak has gone on record to state the company has no plans for Windows Phone. It was asked if BlackBerry was going to take its multi-platform strategy to the next level, taking on yet another OS to further branch out and appeal to more consumers. Rather unsurprisingly, BlackBerry does not plan to support Microsoft's Windows 10 Mobile any time soon.
Speaking to the Business Line, Nayak said:
"As a company we moved to a multi-platform strategy. If you look at our enterprise software, they run across Windows, iOS, BlackBerry and Android. On device side as well that's broadly the goal — we'll obviously not have iOS on the device side but as of now it'll be BlackBerry OS and Android to give a choice to our customers. At this point we do not have any plans for a Windows Phone."
So, BlackBerry isn't making a Windows Phone to match company efforts with the Android-powered BlackBerry Priv. We'll put the question to you though: would you like to see a BlackBerry running Windows 10 Mobile? Let us know in the comments.
