Look, we all know that BlackBerry is in a tail spin and has been for awhile. And at this point the situation can only become an incredible underdog story or a put the dog out of his misery moment. There’s no status quo anymore. But somehow the hole keeps being dug deeper. BlackBerry announced an abysmal early earnings report and major layoffs on Friday, and now there’s something else. BlackBerry was forced to release a statement on Saturday saying that the new BBM apps for iOS and Android, which were supposed to be released Saturday and Sunday respectively, are being delayed. And that’s just suboptimal. With so much bad news, the new BBM apps were supposed to be something to get excited about. Or they were supposed to at least be a solid and uneventful release. But a leaked version of BBM for Android has brought the whole BBM weekend rollout to a grinding halt.
