BlackBerry's Chen: We're still the leader in enterprise
According to Chen, BlackBerry is the only MDM provider that the DoD can use. 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. The executive adds that QNX is being used by automobile manufacturers as a leading M2M technology.
Chen also hints at some new capabilities for the company that will be announced at CES next month, along with some cloud services. The new BlackBerry CEO says that the company has a strong cash position with $3 billion on the balance sheet. He says, "The journey has just begun." Let's hope that this time, the journey leads to a better ending.
