Leaks happen all the time and the BlackBerry community is no stranger to them. Fan boys practically feed on them, so they might not go away any time soon. However, it seems that BlackBerry CEO John Chen has some strong opinions regarding leakers. Here’s what he has to say:
“One of the most frustrating things for all of us at BlackBerry is when a critical and confidential project is reported in the media before we are ready to discuss it. Leaks are, at their best, distracting, and at their worst downright misleading to our stakeholders. The business implications of a leak are seldom advantageous.”
It’s unclear what particular leak has caused Mr. Chen to speak up, but he made it pretty clear that he isn’t happy about it. To all the leakers out there, this serves as an early warning.
