BlackBerry's new chief executive officer, John S. Chen, today said that the company has no plans to shutter its smartphone business unit. "I know we have enough ingredients to build a long-term sustainable business," said Chen, speaking to Reuters. "I have done this before and seen the same movie before." Chen is confident that the company has all the right ingredients to stage a meaningful comeback. Chen is taking the reigns from Thorsten Heins, who is exiting the company after arranging a $1 billion investment from Fairfax Financial Holdings and other firms.

".......and seen the same movie before."

Hopefully he isn't talking about the movie "Burried"
He is absolutely correct we have seen the same movie before. Seen the Palm film. Seen the Sony/Ericsson film. Seen Nokia (and it was a long painful, brutal film about death). Now watching the Blackberry and it is a trilogy that keeps getting worse...
At least this guy doesn't have a whacked out name like "Thorsten"!!! Like the previous CEO! Laughing
