Pfizer Ditching BlackBerry, Citing Its ‘Volatile’ State

Pfizer Inc., the world’s biggest drugmaker, will wean off of BlackBerry Ltd.’s phones, citing concerns that the mobile technology company might not be around in the future or may have service interrupted.

Pfizer told employees who use BlackBerry devices to instead get an Apple Inc. phone or one run on Google Inc.’s Android operating system. The drugmaker cited Waterloo, Ontario-based BlackBerry’s declining market share and noted that the company attempted to sell itself.
