2 Comments

T-Mobile(s tmus) customers hoping to pick up a BlackBerry(s bbry) won’t be doing so from a retail store. On Wednesday the carrier said it would no longer stock BlackBerry handsets in its retail stores. Instead, customers can order them online for delivery. The news came by way of Reuters who spoke with David Carey, T-Mobile’s executive vice president for corporate services.

Carey said that keeping retail stock “was inefficient” because of low in-store demand for BlackBerry devices. This news follows BlackBerry’s own warnings about its future as it has decided to focus on the pro-sumer and enterprise market. BlackBerry also signed a letter of intent this week to take a $4.7 billion buyout offer‘ from Fairfax Financial.

Makes sense to me. How many people do you think walk into a TMO store and ask for a BB?

Isn’t buying on line easier? I’ve bought my last three blackberry’s that way. No big deal.
