BlackBerry: "Keyboards Are the Future"

Ina Fried, reporting for the new Recode:

The rest of the mobile industry may have moved on, but BlackBerry CEO John Chen is betting the future of the company's device business on smartphones with keyboards. "You are going to see us center more and more on the 'qwerty' keyboard," Chen said in an interview with Re/code on Wednesday.

… It also helps explain why BlackBerry sued Typo, the Ryan Seacrest-backed startup that makes an add-on keyboard for the iPhone.

I just can't read that headline, "Keyboards Are the Future", without hearing it being screamed by Mike Lazaridis over and over again as he is dragged by the arms from a 2012 boardroom meeting.
