    BlackBerry shifts away from its smartphone foundation - The Globe and Mail

    So it is true? They're only going sell phones in Indonesia but not elsewhere.

    So the dtek60 is probably their last one...forget about the mercury I guess.

    They aren't even going to sell phones in Indonesia - a licencee is paying a fee (likely very small) that they can make and sell them and make a profit.

    Similar to how Kodak is slapped on any old junk.

    Yep. Or like the big radio names, like Emerson or RCA, that still exist only in licensing purgatory.

    Yes - except Microsoft gives away (I think) Windows Mobile for free now to OEMs?

    (but get them to sign IP sharing agreements).
