BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) has been on a roll as of late. This has nothing to do with smartphone market share, but everything to do with the steps the company is taking to once again reach stability in an industry it previously dominated.
As we discussed earlier this week, AT&T will begin selling the Passport and Classic online and in retail stores starting today. This alone was big news for the company, but it is just the start.

This is a big move for the company, as it will give more users the ability to take advantage of the most updated operating system. Here is an excerpt from the blog post:
“For those who were envious of the BlackBerry Passport’s debut with OS 10.3 and the subsequent BlackBerry Classic launch, the wait is over, as the following devices will join the BlackBerry Classic in delivering the goods with version 10.3.1.”
The piece goes on to list out the devices with the latest operating system, noting the following: Q5, Q10, Z10, Z30, Z3, BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9983, and of course, the Passport.
