In an interview with Reuters, John Chen stated that the company has no plans of shutting down the handset business just yet.
“I know we have enough ingredients to build a long-term sustainable business. I have done this before and seen the same movie before.”
Chen is the temporary replacement until the board is able to find a more permanent solution. With this announcement it is clear that BlackBerry will continue to fight for market share and will bring its mobile computing to the larger audience.
