There has been plenty of talk surrounding the launch of the BlackBerry Z3 and ultimately how sales are going. As we noted early on, pre-orders for the device seemingly went well and when launch day came around, there was plenty of buzz at retailers as well. BlackBerry themselves spoke about the launch on their Inside BlackBerry Blog.

Thus far, the company and more importantly BlackBerry CEO John Chen seem happy with the results. John Chen is speaking the the Re/Code Conference today and we're expecting more video from that soon but before that event, he sat down with CNBC to offer discuss the Z3 launch and BlackBerry's strategy going forward. You can check out the video from that portion below.
