In a momentary reprieve from the gloom surrounding BlackBerry’s future, Sprint declared that it has not yet decided to stop carrying BlackBerry handsets. Sprint CFO Joe Euteneur said that Sprint will be taking a “wait-and-see” approach for whether or not it will continue to carry BlackBerry phones in its stores now that the handset vendor is shifting focus away from the consumer market. The carrier noted that business customers “have typically been the biggest fans of BlackBerry smartphones,” Reuters reports. This development comes right on the heels of T-Mobile’s confirmation that it will no longer carry BlackBerry products in its stores. Reuters also spoke with Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam who stated that, much like Sprint, his company’s decision “would depend on its customers’ wishes.”
