This shouldn't have been a surprise. When the product isn't selling, you don't need to make it. I am sure there will be an active after market for used devices.

And yes, it is sad. And inevitable.

True, unless he is doing exactly what the Board and Most Important Shareholder want him to do. Either make hardware profitable (and he is doing a great job selling assets off and cutting costs) or shut it down. There is no growth in the company (QNX, blah blah blah, IoT, blah blah blah) and it doesn't seem likely he can turn it around with Good, AtHoc, etc.

And hardware is history...

Probably based on Android along with all the security issues they have.
