During today’s BlackBerry Q3 fiscal year 2014 earnings call, BlackBerry’s new CEO, John Chen, was quite revealing about the company’s future.
“For the foreseeable future, our designer in North America will focus on enterprise only,” said Chen. This means BlackBerry will put the consumer focused smartphone on the back-burner.
Chen gave no indication when the move to the consumer focuses device would begin. However, Chen did clarify that the majority of the consumer devices will be designed by Foxconn during their five-year agreement.
