BlackBerry Prepared to Move Past Smartphones, CEO Chen Says

Updated on

BlackBerry Ltd. may be forced to stop making smartphones if turnaround efforts fail to gain traction, Chief Executive Officer John Chen said in an interview.

The company could still reduce the number of models, discontinue low-end devices and focus more on professionals and government workers to bring the smartphone business back to profitability, Chen said.
