This week, the tech world is abuzz with news of new offerings from CES, the annual trade show in Las Vegas that runs this year from Jan. 5 to Jan. 7. Notable releases announced thus far include the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G, 2022 Samsung Neo QLED TVs, LG’s first-ever gaming laptop and the iO10 smart toothbrushes from Oral-B. Due to the new omicron variant, though, several companies opted to present remotely instead of in-person this year, including Lenovo, Google and Microsoft and Intel.
But as many doors open, another is closing: On Jan. 4, BlackBerry stopped running support for its devices that aren’t using Android software. The company announced their decision in September 2020, noting that it wanted to focus on providing “intelligent security software and services to enterprises and governments around the world.” The good news? You can play the popular Blackberry game BrickBreaker on your iPhone.
