It wasn’t that long ago that BlackBerry was the envy of the tech world, everybody wanted one of the oh-so-cool smartphones. But that was before Apple`s iPhones and Google`s Android phones, and a handful of other makers offering faster access to the Internet, better cameras and a world of apps, and BlackBerry paid a dear price.

Can Blackberry be saved? Josh Lipton reports.
