BlackBerry Limited says it plans to sell most of its property in its home country of Canada.

Complaints against press, poster and online advertising by Three UK have been upheld by the Advertising Standards Authority.
The ads referred to Three’s 3G network with DC-HSDPA technology. They described the network as ‘ultrafast’ and ‘running at what we affectionately call 3.9G’. Rival network EE said it thought the ‘3.9G’ claim was potentially misleading.
The smartphone/tablet hybrid - usually described as a ‘phablet’ - isn’t as much of a niche product as previously thought. That’s the conclusion of a new report from Juniper Research.
It expects global phablet shipments to exceed 120 million units in 2018, up from an estimated 20 million last year.
A new report from IT research company Gartner forecasts a growth in mobile advertising spending this year, with the total global spend increasing to $18.0 billion (£10.9 billion) from last year’s estimated $13.1 billion total.
That growth is expected to continue for the next few years, with the mobile ad market being worth $41.9 billion (£25.4 billion) by 2017.
