Despite BlackBerry getting out of the business of making handsets, BlackBerry CEO John Chen has plans for devices with the iconic BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard. Speaking to Amber Kanwar, John Chen confirmed it will continue on and BlackBerry will be selective when managing the brand.
A lighter side of the video, John Chen got to pick out his three favorite BlackBerrys. The Bold 9900, the BlackBerry Curve series and finally, the BlackBerry Passport. As for the BlackBerry PlayBook, John Chen has never used one. Kind of amusing to think about on this hectic day.
