Just last month, BlackBerry announced they would not be selling BlackBerry 10 devices in Japan. Essentially, the company would be pulling out of that market.
Rumors claimed by “industry sources” from Korean news wire Yonhap say BlackBerry intends to pull out of the Korean market too.
In a region rulled by LG, Samsung, and Apple there have been “sluggish sales” for BlackBerry. The company could easily leave the region without impact to its business.
