    He's not the gung ho type. He doesn't even seem to be very passionate about BlackBerry in particular. His label as a "turnaround" artist is what I think sticks out the most.

    He looks like he's just getting things done and doing what he's been brought in to do.

    Sort of like the opposite of steve jobs where jobs had passion for his craft. I find that chen's passion isn't really in BlackBerry, or it's products, it's in the thrill of a good comeback.

    I agree also and I think he's saying the right things too like the Passport "is not an iPhone killer" and that the phone is meant to "make time, not kill time". So far, I like him and I think he is the right guy to lead this company.

    If he was doing his job well he wouldn't let the shop.blackberry site CONSTANTLY be showing out of stock. Is pathetic and having a negative impact on sales.

    Hmm ok, I guess he is keeping an eye on stock levels by not making way too many, like Heins was with the Z10?

    About ... out of stocks...

    It's strategy, too : The more the thing is demanded, the more it is rare and the more it is demanded and so on!

    LOL

    But he's the right attitude...

    His contribution... he did not kill the Passport when the project was presented to him...

    I think the man has the right ideas and the right attitude!

    For a day or so yes. Much more than that is just straight up hurting sales. Wonder how many people got frustrated and simply said "screw it" and got something else instead.

    I'm pretty sure everyone who wants a Blackberry is going to stick with the company. If they haven't jumped ship before this, it doesn't make sense that they would now. They will stick around for the passport if they want it. Blackberry relies on the loyal, not on the experimenters, imo

    So far so good. He has a good sense of humor. Seems to be a no nonsense type of leader. Not arrogant. Pragmatic. And a little frank at times in interviews. Which I like.
