BlackBerry is still facing an uphill battle in the smartphone market even though it has had some modest success with BlackBerry 10 operating system and the new Q10 smartphone. However, if you're a BlackBerry user who loves the BBM Music service, the Canadian company has announced that the music service will be discontinued.
BlackBerry began notifying subscribers this week by email that it will take the service offline on June 2, 2013 -- paying subscribers will not be billed after the month of April.
As a music alternative, BlackBerry is pushing subscribers to Rdio as an alternative.
The email notes that Rdio is offering a 30-day free trial of the premium offering. Interestingly, there is apparently no official Rdio app for BlackBerry 10 devices.
