Jason let us know about a Globe&Mail interview with John Sims, BlackBerry President of Global Enterprise Solutions, who spoke about BlackBerry’s enterprise focus. He said that the company is shifting focus ton government and business customers but it is key that BlackBerry remain visible in retail stores. He said this is because employees go to these stores and would be a lot more comfortable if they saw it in stores. Also many telecoms are moving from selling devices to services which is where BlackBerry comes in.
Its an interesting read over at the Globe&Mail if you have a minute. I also found it interesting that he is coming from the new crop of BlackBerry managers and that “we haven’t been here for the whole history of BlackBerry, so there are no sacred cows.” It should be interesting to see what they make of it.
