A spokesperson from VPNoverview.com, a website which analyses online search traffic, said: ‘BlackBerry was the go-to smartphone brand in the early 2010s with the brand’s phones being easily recognised because of their qwerty keyboards.
Google searches for ‘BlackBerry phones’ have increased by 590 per cent since the announcement.
The spokesperson said BlackBerry are planning to expand into the cyber security market, and the reasons why people want to sell their old tech is multi-faceted.
They explained: ‘Customers could be looking to sell not only because they are unable to use the device but also to profit from the vintage aspect the phone will now adopt.’
