BlackBerry CEO John Chen Talks ‘Jakarta,’ ‘Q20,’ ‘BES 12,’

Tuesday morning’s press events start with a conference held by BlackBerry (BBRY) and its CEO, John Chen. The company received some positive mention thus far with Microsoft on Sunday and Monday trumpeting the news of its “BBM” instant messenger software coming to Microsoft’s (MSFT) Windows Phone, and that Ford will dump Microsoft’s software for autos in favor of BlackBerry’s “QNX” embedded OS. Chen emerges, smiling warmly, greeting some familiar faces in the front row, in a sober grey suit and purplish tie. He seems raring to get going with the proceedings. He wants to start off by talking about progress.
