Chen Confirms BlackBerry Classic Launch in November Along With BES 12?


While I was out for Passover, BlackBerry CEO John Chen sat down with Maria Bartiromo to discuss where he sees BlackBerry going. In an interesting move he reiterated how important BlackBerry loyalists are to him and how he has a plan to release the “BlackBerry Classic” model with its physical buttons in November. I thought it was still worth mentioning because Chen also mentions that a new version of BES is coming then to manage iPhone, Android, and Windows Mobile which based on his hints is BES 12.

Chen also restated how he thinks he can actually make money in the high volume low margin handset market and has no intention to sell it. I highly recommend checking out the full interview over at USA today if you have not already.
