T-Mobile rids itself of BlackBerry stock in wake of struggles

More troubling news on the BlackBerry front now – T-Mobile’s US outfit has announced that it will no longer be stocking the struggling company’s devices, and will also be removing its current stock of phones.

David Carey, Vice Preisdent of the wireless carrier, revealed the news to Reuters, citing a lack of sales as the reason behind it. It’s not a total exodus however, as T-Mobile will still deliver BlackBerrys through direct order, and display them in store for people to check out. So far, other major US carriers are yet to drop the company, although T-Mobile is positioned as the country’s fourth biggest  provider, which is telling all in itself.

This is hardly surprising news – BlackBerry has had an extremely difficult past few years as its handsets have declined in popularity. After putting itself on sale, the company recently announced it was pulling out from the consumer market, and an offer of sale has been put forward just this week, although Reuters suggest this is in doubt.
