BlackBerry CEO John ChenBlackBerry is still a mess. That hardly comes as news to anyone. But with a new CEO at the helm, the company is more focused than ever at not only surviving, but thriving. (That is what companies are supposed to do, after all.)

And if you had any doubts about whether that strategy will include Android, we'll point you to this passage from CrackBerry's lunch with Chen last week in Las Vegas:

 “You could be an iPhone customer, and also a BlackBerry customer,” Chen explained. “You could be an Android customer, and also a BlackBerry customer. It's not mutually exclusive. I think that's an important key message of the company going forward.”

The full interview — and Kevin Michaluk's accompanying piece — are must-reads, especially for the folks who still keep one eye open to what's going on in Waterloo.
