Because BBRY has four different divisions, three of which can be considered software, and the hardware division. Two divisions have routinely been profitable - QNX and BES. The other two - BBM and the handset division, struggle. But QNX is in 2 out of every 3 new cars sold, and also has a monopoly in the medical industry, so that is keeping this company afloat.
TLDR - Blackberry isn't going to die just because they struggle with handsets.

There's a chance they'll release another handset but most likely the priv is pivotal to whether or not they turn into just a software company.
But have you seen the profit yields? What they make in software is tiny so far.
Mobilemaster, 06 Dec 2015Who said they bought 5 companies? Post the link please.BlackBerry bought the following companies in the last 20 months.
I see many people talking about BlackBerry getting bankrupt.In the last 20 months the company acquired 5 companies.The last company they acquired was $425 Million.
They are now seeing more money every quarter for the last 2 years.They are not doing well in the handset division but they are doing well in other things they do.BlackBerry is not only in a handset business .They do other things too.
Arlene Joy , 06 Dec 2015im a beautifull of The Phone Im good I agree
I like the part where they sold out and left their most loyal customers, the BB10 users, without a clear upgrade path.
Repeating the mistakes of Nokia before them. Your loyal fans are the ones who kept the company alive.
no worries BB will be back in business... just you wait...
it was there do or die move for this smartphone...
but it sold out like grandmas pancakes...
will be seeing more from BB
hurray to the fruit companies
Ali, 05 Dec 2015Saved money for this device finally bought it and after 1 week sold it. The device was getting hot.You sold it because it gets hot. And Blackberry just released software updates that fix a lot of the issues that were causing the over heating. If I saved my money up to buy a phone I would have waited the week or two for them to fix the issue.
