According to BlackBerry, it will close on sales covering 80% of its properties by the end of this month, with the remaining 20% of properties scheduled to close during the third quarter. BlackBerry is selling more than 3 million square feet of office space - some of which it will lease back - as well as vacant lands. BlackBerry CEO John S.
