BlackBerry CEO John Chen confirmed in an interview at CES that all BlackBerry smartphones launched this year will run Google’s operating system.
It’s bittersweet news for die-hard BlackBerry fans, a shrinking, but fiercely loyal group. Yes, BlackBerry will continue to exist, but won’t offer any phones running on its own BlackBerry 10 software. Still, future Android BlackBerry devices means more choice besides the usual mix of Samsung, LG or HTC Android phones.
Chen refused to comment on the availability and details of the upcoming devices.
