All seven of the G7 governments are 'Berry users, and most companies in regulated industries still count on BlackBerry for secure communications. As for the future of the company, Chen points out that 40 million iOS and Android users have signed up for BBM, which he calls "the most secure mobile-messaging service," and he says that BlackBerry plans on monetizing BBM to bring in revenue.
