In a recent interview with CNBC, John Chen states that BlackBerry is finally financially under control and has high hopes for the future.

Chen was interviewed by CNBC last Friday shortly after the earnings call, and he stated that since the company is now in a good place, in spite of $1.4 billion in debt, his focus will be to stabilize the incoming revenue and get it to start growing.

Also of note is that this most recent earnings report did not have a very accurate approximation of devices sold because many stores and carriers have only recently picked up the Classic and Passport. He also mentioned that the Classic is selling about twice as well as the Passport. We can expect to see some solid sales numbers on both devices in a little bit less than 90 days at the next quartely earnings call.
