After launching high-end Android smartphone Priv, BlackBerry is focusing on the mid-range segment this year.
The Canadian smart phone manufacturer will be launching two new mid-range Android smart phones this year, the company CEO John Chen in a meeting said, however, he did not reveal the definite time period of launch.
Speaking to the National website, Chen added that out of the two smartphones, one will be full touchscreen while the other one will featuring a physical Qwerty keyboard. He also said the prices of the two smartphones will be around $300-400.
Chen also said that the Android-based Priv smartphone “was too high-end a product” for enterprise customers. Fo the reason, the company has slashed the price of the handset earlier this week.

Man divorces wife just 15 minutes after Islamic marriage in Dubai
A man in Dubai divorced his bride just 15 minutes after their Islamic marriage as he felt ‘insulted’ by her father’s bride price demands.
The man agreed to pay his new father-in-law Dh100,000 for their wedding but the older man became impatient to get the cash, DailyMail reported.
According to Gulf News, family members and friends accompanied the couple to a Sharia judge’s office to witness the marriage contract being signed. The groom then gave Dh 50,000 on the spot as agreed, with the rest to come after the party left the court building, according to Gulf News.
But, the bride’s father demanded the remaining cash as soon as the signing was over, even though the groom didn’t have it on him.
He said it would only take five minutes to walk to his car, which was parked outside, and get the rest of the bride price.
Instead of letting him retrieve it, the father insisted him to pay either right then or send a friend or relative to get the money while he stayed inside.
The groom felt insulted and demeaned by the series of demands and called off the marriage immediately, a lawyer handling the case said.
‘He told the bride’s father that he did not want his daughter as his wife and divorced her in less than 15 minutes from signing the marriage contract,’ he said.Follow @gorkhapost
