Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper once called BlackBerry as a “crown jewel” to the country.
But despite keeping thousands of Canadians employed and billions pumping into the country’s economy each year, the Canadian government may well just sit by and let the Waterloo, Ontario-based smartphone maker wind down, split up, or sell-off.
According to a Reuters interview, industry minister James Moore said it was “unfortunate” the company’s two new phones, the touch-screen BlackBerry Z10 and the keyboard-enabled Q10, were not a hit with consumers. He noted he was aware of the company’s current bid to explore routes that may end up seeing it split up and sold off to a rival firm.
