BlackBerry is the device, not just software

November 7, 2013

Kevin Michaluk asked the upcoming interim CEO of BlackBerry, John Chen in a quick interview on the future of BlackBerry phones:

People are asking me about handsets — “are you going to get out of the handset business” — and that’s really ridiculous of them to say that. I don’t even know what that means and on top of that, the majority of all our revenue and our customer interaction is with handsets, so I’m not quite sure why anybody would say that on account of a “big picture” thing.

I have to say this Kevin, and you know this very well… what is BlackBerry without the device? The question is, can we do more in that? It’s not about let’s not do this and do that. Sometimes it’s not business sensible to make those statements.

Glad to see that John knows what BlackBerry’s real strenght is; it’s the combination of the OS 10, BBM, secure email and the phone itself.
