How is BlackBerry going? Well, while the usual suspects in Apple and Samsung snort up most of the profits on the mobile industry, BlackBerry is still ticking along under the leadership of John Chen.

During his most recent interview, Chen said: "I don't have any intention to sell BlackBerry. Not until the BlackBerry shareholder has good value reflecting truly what we have. Then, if there is a potential proper suitor that would take care of our customers... I have a fiduciary responsibility to listen. But until then, there's not point in listening... We make the most secure handset. Everybody, all of our competitors, will give that to us. Governments around the world are still using BlackBerry handsets. The emotional reason is, BlackBerry is iconic to the industry. We started this industry arguably".

The latest on BlackBerry's next flagship is that it will be a 5.4-inch smartphone with a 1440p display. We should expect it to drop in November, with it being an exclusive to AT&T.
