/// T-Mobile Plans to Pare Its In-Store Supply of BlackBerrys, While AT&T and Verizon Plan to Keep Them in Stock
T-Mobile said on Thursday that it plans to stop carry BlackBerry phones on its store shelves though it will continue to sell them online and let customers order the devices from its retail locations. “T-Mobile continues to support the Blackberry platform,” a T-Mobile representative told AllThingsD . “The T-Mobile retail channel is moving toward fulfillment via direct ship for Blackberry devices, rather than in-store inventory. A customer will still see a phone on the shelf. If inventory is not available in the store, the device can be ordered.” The move comes amid mass layoffs , very sluggish sales of BlackBerry 10 devices as well as the company’s plan to sell itself to a large shareholder . AT&T meanwhile, said it is not pulling the plug on BlackBerry, at least for now. “We continue to carry BlackBerry devices in our stores,” AT&T spokesman Mark Siegel told AllThingsD .
