During the media Q&A with BlackBerry CEO John Chen, it was asked to him regarding the company’s strategy for emerging markets and what’s on the roadmap for next year.

Chen said he is extremely interested in the developing countries market. A part of that needs to be lead with applications. An example being mobile payments.

Chen said there’s lots of opportunities in South East Asia. BlackBerry has been working in Mobile Payments for a while and it will continue as a focus.

However, Chen didn’t stop there with regards to what’s in the pipeline for next year. Apparently, another “innovatively designed BlackBerry” is in the works.

What such device could Chen be referencing? Perhaps, in 2015, we will see BlackBerry release a slider and/or high-end all-touch? What type of innovative BlackBerry device do you think we could see next year?
