Since John Chen took over as CEO for BlackBerry we’ve seen a few new members appointed to the management team. This time its in the sales department and Eric Johnson will take the helm and hopefully move the ship forward.
As we all know – sales for BlackBerry smartphones need to improve and Eric could well be the man for the job, looking at his past experience. With BlackBerry 10 now a year old, 2014 needs to be better for them than 2013 was, although the company expects it to take a while longer for a full recovery in terms of making money.
WATERLOO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Jan. 13, 2014) – BlackBerry(R) Limited (NASDAQ:BBRY)(TSX:BB), a world leader in mobile communications, today announced that Eric Johnson will join the Company as President, Global Sales reporting to BlackBerry’s Executive Chair and CEO, John Chen.
“I am pleased to round out BlackBerry’s new executive leadership team with another outstanding addition today. I have worked with Eric extensively and have tremendous respect for his sales expertise and customer centric approach to business. Our carriers, partners, distributors and enterprise customers will benefit greatly from Eric’s approach,” said Chen. “The experience that the majority of the new leadership team has in working together previously will drive change within the organization at a faster pace. I look forward to demonstrating these changes to the market.”
Eric Johnson most recently served as Senior Vice President and General Manager for SAP’s Global Database and Technology. Prior to that, Eric was Senior Vice President and General Manager of Platform and Analytics Sales for North America, also at SAP. In the years preceding, Eric served in several capacities at Sybase, including Senior Vice President and General Manager for North America, Senior Vice President and General Manager Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Senior Vice President and General Manager for Financial Services, where he managed both direct and indirect sales including field sales, professional services and customer services.

Our friends from CrackBerry have some cool features for Z10 owners to share,If you Want to have the Porsche Design P’9982 styled clock on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone, a way to get it has now been discovered. As noted in the CrackBerry Forums by DarcyTallGuy, the process itself is fairly easy and utilizes a ‘backdoor’ in the clock application for BlackBerry 10.2, we are not sure if 10.1 have this feature, maybe someone can test and let us know?
At this point, it appears to only be for the BlackBerry Z10 because while some of the options are available on the Z30 and Q10, you don’t have the Porsche Design options to choose from after going through the process.
- Step 1 – Open the clock app and go to World Clock mode. Add a location but instead of a real location type in fostah, then swipe down from the top.
- Step 2 – Click on the menu item labeled ‘backdoor’ and from there, in the list choose ‘Emulate Porsche Design HW’.
- Step 3 – Close the clock app, reopen it as per normal and then go to the clock app settings.
- Step 4 – In the drop down of clock face styles, you should now see options for Porsche Design Digital and Analog faces.
This will allow one more alarm type for you to choose from cool right?
Update: Due to overhelming request we are uploading a simple 13 mini steps for those that is having trouble to change the clock.
