BlackBerry is the butt of many a tech joke. Once the pinnacle of personal mobile technology, it became the phone that some people say they don’t want to be seen using. But the company isn’t giving up. It reported some surprisingly good numbers earlier in the summer. And now CEO John Chen is talking about taking a leap with the big players into wearables.
Speaking at the Super Mobility Conference in Las Vegas this week, Chen said the company was doing some research into the possibilities for things like smartwatches and smart glasses.
Of course, some people have jokes.
