Detwiler Fenton reportedly facing criminal case over BlackBerry sales information

Back in April of 2013, research firm Detwiler Fenton claimed that Z10 devices were being returned in unusually high numbers, which caused BlackBerry stock to drop nearly 8%. At the time, the claim sounded rather crazy because it essentially made it look as though returns were exceeding sales.

BlackBerry understandably took issue with the claims and stated they were absolutely false and sought a US and Canadian review of the claims through Securities and Exchange Commission and Ontario Securities Commission and now it appears as though they might be seeing some justice on the matter according to a new report from the Boston Business Journal.

John Chen not a fan of UK Prime Minister's desire to ban encrypted messaging apps

In what I'm sure will come as a surprise to no one, John Chen has now spoken out against UK Prime Minister David Cameron's comments supporting the banning of encrypted messaging apps which could include BBM, WhatsApp, and Snapchat, among others. Heading to LinkedIn to share his thoughts, the BlackBerry CEO laid out details that highlight how privacy and national security can be balanced. Hint: It's not by banning encrypted communications services because, in the grand scheme of it all, that would just make things easier for hackers.

Sony Pictures Entertainment

Thanksgiving this year was a bad time for Sony Pictures Entertainment, and that's putting it lightly. Hackers known as The Guardians of Peace managed to take over entire portions of their internal systems which led to the theft of a ton of personally identifiable information about Sony Pictures Entertainment employees, movie scripts, information about movie deals, and even full versions of unreleased Sony movies. Because of the hack, Sony had to find new ways to communicate with each other and keep the organization running during that time and as a new report from the WSJ highlights, they turned to BlackBerry in some cases.

John Chen increases his BlackBerry turnaround odds to 99 percent

After BlackBerry's Q3 fiscal 2015 earnings call, BlackBerry CEO John Chen sat down with Bloomberg's Emily Chang to discuss the report, business strategy and profit outlook for the company. As has become a common question for Chen, he was asked how he felt about his chances of fully turning BlackBerry around. Rather than running with 50-50 or 80 percent this time, the CEO was confident enough to lay down a 99 percent. You can check out the full interview below or head on over to the Bloomberg videos site to watch it.

Dec 08, 2014 John Chen won't waver from his enterprise strategy for BlackBerry

John Chen Executive Chairman and CEO at BlackBerry

John Chen has a master plan for BlackBerry and as highlighted earlier in a famously straightforward LinkedIn blog post from the BlackBerry CEO titled 'Don't Believe The Hype', he's not going to stray away from that plan just for some short term hype or to chase trends, despite pressure to do so.

That plan as we know it includes BlackBerry focusing and building upon their security foundation by introducing new solutions and offerings for enterprise rather than on the consumer market because that's what is going to lead to the long-term success of BlackBerry, not an endorsement from Kim Kardashian or rumors and speculation about BlackBerry's plans for the Chinese market.

BlackBerry is on the cusp of returning as a growth company

Yesterday could turn out to be one of the most pivotal days in the transformation of BlackBerry. I don't say this lightly either. I've been very concerned, yet hopeful about the future of the business since before the launch of BlackBerry 10. Despite the huge earnings and stock price volatility I still remain both concerned and hopeful. And I'm still a shareholder. I've never sold any of the shares that I own.
