BlackBerry is "here to stay", interim CEO tells customers
TORONTO (REUTERS) - BlackBerry Ltd is "very much alive, thank you", Interim Chief Executive John Chen affirmed in an open letter on Monday in which the smartphone maker committed itself to rebuilding as a niche player concentrating on the enterprise market.
Mr Chen took over as CEO a month ago after BlackBerry abandoned a plan to sell itself.
"Our 'for sale' sign has been taken down and we are here to stay," he wrote in the letter that was addressed to "valued enterprise customers and partners". The company provided the letter to Reuters.
"In short, reports of our death are greatly exaggerated."
