It's has been an interesting few years for Blackberry, with a new design ethos, a self-made OS in the form of BB10 and even a jaunt into Android territory with their latest handset, the Priv. And it looks like things are set to continue in that fashion in the future.
The word out of CES 2016 in Las Vegas is that Blackberry might only be releasing a single new handset this year, and it will be running Google Android operating system. There's a focus on rebuilding the brand in people's eyes and building on the things which were seen as positives in the Priv.
It's hard to get anyone to try something new so there's a reason the market share belongs to Android and iOS - they're familar, well supported and available on the vast majority of phones. Windows Mobile and Windows 10 are still fighting the good fight but BlackBerry needs to increase interest in its brand again without the obstacles of a new interface which might have less of the most popular apps from the around the globe.
The company might release two phones this year, and both will carry Android inside, but we wouldn't be surprised if they worked on relaunching BB10 or 11 in the future.
