- BlackBerry Will Keep Pushing Out Handsets, According To Interim CEO
  • BlackBerry Will Keep Pushing Out Handsets, According To Interim CEO

    Soon to be named BlackBerry interim-CEO, John Chen, has started talking about the future of the company right after the announcement of his future appointment. In an interview with Reuters earlier today, Chen went on the record stating BlackBerry's handset business is not going away anytime soon, even with him as CEO.

    "I know we have enough ingredients to build a long-term sustainable business. I have done this before and seen the same movie before."

    Where exactly did he execute this turnaround before? As the CEO of Sybase, a computer database software maker that was on its death bed back in 1998. Twelve years after taking over, he sold the company to SAP for 15x its original value. A big turn around indeed.

    Turning around BlackBerry won't be an easy task, by any means, but it seems for now, BlackBerry has made the right call in Chen. It'll be interesting to see how he approaches the mobile hardware sector, and how he attempts to position the company for long term success. I do wonder if he's interested in only providing BlackBerry smartphones to prosumers, or if the rest of us will be the company's focus once again.
