BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY) reassures U.S. government about BlackBerry device quality
BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) CEO John Chen recently went to The White House to ensure President Barack Obama and other staff members to continue using BlackBerry devices.
“As part of my meeting customers I have briefed the White House from an IT perspective,” stated Chen in an interview with Bloomberg Television. “It’s just customer outreach — and they were nice enough to share some of their thoughts with me.”
Chen met with over 100 clients since becoming CEO in November. Chen said he talked to the President and his staff about the things they like and what they want to see out of BlackBerry’s products in the future.
At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, BlackBerry revealed the Q20. The Q20 brought back buttons that were dropped from recent models. A more secure version of the BBM instant messaging service has been released as well.
