BlackBerry CEO calls iPhone owners ‘wall huggers’

John Chen
BlackBerry CEO John Chen has some fighting words for Apple. At the Oasis Montgomery conference in Santa Monica, California, Chen was asked about his thoughts on the success of the iPhone and then he joked about how bad the battery performance of the device is.

“I call you guys wall huggers,” said Chen in reference to the need to always be near a power outlet.

Chen was asked why he decided to leave Silver Lake to become the head of BlackBerry.

“I wanted to do something where I could wake up every day and worry,” said Chen. “And I have fulfilled my dream.”
