Blackberry founder and former co-CEO Mike Lazaridis has publicly abandoned his plan to buy the company formerly known as RIM.

When the company was put up for sale months ago, Lazaridis valiantly rallied investors to buy the company. Blackberry decided not to sell and is currently working to regain its foothold in the mobile industry.

BlackBerry pens open letter to customers and fans

The past few weeks haven't been kind to BlackBerry whose new smartphone releases have been somewhat overshadowed by talks of acquisition, a delayed attempt at bringing BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) to Android and iOS as well as recent loss of nearly $1 billion due to poor selling Z10 smartphones and the most depressing news of all is that it has no recourse but to lay off 4,500 employees as part of its restructuring. Thorsten Heins and Co. have been rather quiet througout all this, even cancelling a regularly scheduled earnings conference call in order to deal with the issues facing the company. There's an open letter from BlackBerry that's expected to make the rounds in various newspapers today and this is the first time the company is opening up about the issues it faces.

“You can continue to count on BlackBerry,”  is the gist of the letter with BlackBerry pointing out the positives (cash on hand, debt free balance sheet and the aim to cut expensies by 5- per cent." The company says they may be down but they are definitely not out despite what various pundits are saying. Hit jump for the full letter.

After successfully launching the new BlackBerry Z10 and now readying to launch the BlackBerry Q10, BlackBerry is fighting hard to be competitive and sustain its comeback. So when analysts from Detwiler Fenton issued a statement yesterday claiming higher than usual return rates for the BlackBerry Z10 handsets, BlackBerry quickly refuted the claims and is now asking for a full scale inquiry from the Security and Exchange Comission as well as the Ontario Securities Commission.
