Oops. John Chen’s wife uses a Samsung Galaxy (instead of a BB)
John Chen is the man who’s done a wonderful job in turning around the fortunes of BlackBerry and trying to get all the fans back. However, despite the hundreds of thousands of people out there buying BlackBerry phones again, there’s one fan who fan who Mr. Chen couldn’t convert into a believer — Mrs. Chen.
Chens’s wife is said to be a hardcore fan of Samsung smartphones and the first lady of the BlackBerry CEO affords to use one — and has the guts to bring it outside, even though his husband is out there trying to get people to use BlackBerry.
“So eventually I said she needed to use a BlackBerry,” John Chen. “‘No, I like my Samsung,” she said, “and I told her she was embarrassing me.”
While Chen is concerned for his wife’s stubbornness, the humorous Chinese who was born in Hong Kong in 1955, told people he isn’t so much bothered. “There might be a lot of secrets I don’t know” was his excuse.
So, over to you guys and ladies, will you allow your spouse or your lover to use a product of a rival company of yours?
