BlackBerry CEO Chen calls saving BlackBerry "a big deal"; company loses its VP of design
Chen admits that BlackBerry has a reputation for overpromising and underdelivering. "I realize that the company has some credibility gaps," says the CEO, and admits that some carriers basically told him that the manufacturer needs to get its act together. To do this, the executive wants to take BlackBerry from a "mobile technology company" slinging handsets to a "mobile solutions company" supporting the much broader mobile needs of customers.
Meanwhile, the company did lose its VP of user experience design, Don Lindsay. Lindsay was responsible for many of the UI features of BlackBerry 10. He had been with the company since back in 2009. No reason was given for his departure, so we don't know if he jumped, or was pushed.
