BlackBerry CEO Confident About Future

Despite BlackBerry recently reporting billions of dollars in losses, the mobile phone company's new boss in confident that the future is bright.

John Chen, who took over from Thorsten Heins in November 2013, has said that the Canadian manufacturer cannot "be replaced". He is currently the interim chief executive, as well as executive chairman of the firm and has outlined BlackBerry's strategy for 2014.

Luckily, Mr Chen says he is up for a challenge, as the company has had financial worries brought on by the lack of interest in BlackBerry's newest handsets.

Writing for a column for CNBC, he said that he was not focused on what the company had been in the past but was "focused on what BlackBerry will be today and in the future".

According to Mr Chen, the new strategy will include more focus on businesses including "enterprise services, messaging, QNX embedded business and the devices business". 

He added that: "When it comes to enterprise, we're still the leader."
