BlackBerry CEO, John Chen, joined the Recode/Decode podcast a few days ago and he said something that many sites have mis-quoted him but not in a completely negative way.
In this interview John Chen said that there is a device in the market that can find place in enterprises. Simple device with secure emails, secure browser and SMS not even smartphone as we know with all the apps.
After that he mentioned the Bold 9900 as small device that fits in your hand. Many sites titled their posts about it as “Chen want 9900 style device”, well he didn’t say that. It would be great to see this kind of device, but what Chen said is that you can take small device and put it with core features for Enterprise use only.
I don’t know how many companies will deploy such device, but hey, it can be great for low level employees that need a work device. It can also be BB10 device, not the BB10 we know, but the core OS features.
It even may be a hint for more licensing deals as we know TCL and others are all in for Android.
