BlackBerry chief gives turnaround 50-50 chance | Mobile - CNET News

Interesting perspective from a CEO. He's right - they have to catch the next technology trend.

While I think they have a fair chance, they can't afford another misstep.

Maybe not, but he is being honest.
Unlike his predecessors, and we see how that worked out.

Agree but sometime it's best to be positive and say or show people they are working to make things better.

The last several bosses tried that. It didn't work. They also made stuff up.

BlackBerry needs to be completely honest and upfront now. They have no chances left.

Unfortunately for them, they are still a publicly held corporation - ever word counts.
