CEO John Chen said in May 2015 that he was planning to diversify the company and not focus on the development of handsets alone. The software business of the company is now expanding. He said that the company needs to improve the image from a reviving company, and the financial conditions were much better this year.
The company is also gearing up to launch new handsets, and an updated Blackberry Classic is already doing well. The Blackberry Leap that the company launched this week is also getting positive reviews in the market. The company is offering the new handsets at competent prices to increase its market share in the market and has also ended all differences with T-Mobile.
Even as the company posted a drop in sales in March 2015, it surprised everyone with a $28 million profit in the U.S. markets. The company registered a 33% dip in revenues to $660 million as compared the $976 in the same period last year. Chen said that the reputation of the company had gone down in the past few years, but all is not lost, and he has a positive outlook for the future.
