Chen: No wearables from BlackBerry, but a new flagship could be on the way
There is a feeling, at least stateside, that while BlackBerry's market share is quite anemic, an interesting new flagship model might help the dying patient rally. There has been a lot of curiosity surrounding the rumored BlackBerry Q30/Windermere and the mysterious looking QWERTY (no numbers, no punctuation) that has been pictured on the device. It seems that Chen is mindful of the fact that while these low-end devices for emerging markets are necessary, he still needs to deliver a high-end model for the developed markets.
Since BlackBerry did make an effort to join the tablet parade with the BlackBerry PlayBook, you might be expecting to see the Canadian company's brand on a wearable device, perhaps a smartwatch. But a BlackBerry for your wrist is not in the cards according to Chen. BlackBerry's chief executive is trying to make great phones, so you won't see a smartwatch, smartglasses, or new tablets hit the market with the BlackBerry name.
Thanks for the tip!
