    UK Carrier Thinks BlackBerry Is Dying Slowly

    However BlackBerry has a new leader in the form of John Chen who promises to turn the company around. In fact Chen recently expressed that he had a 50-50 chance to turning things around which we’re not sure if it should be taken as a good or bad sign.
