After Apple’s attempt at the smartwatch failed to impress the public on Tuesday, it sounds like somebody else is having a go at winning the public’s affections: Blackberry. Although a few years ago the smartphone maker was a top tech competitor, its sales and reputation have fallen quite a lot since the rise of the phablet, and it apparently sees its resurrection in the form of a wearable, according to CEO John Chen. At the Super Mobility Conference in Las Vegas, Chen states that he “would love to have… BBM on a wearable” and that “it’s definitely an area of research for us”. The announcement has sparked an onset of amusing tweets, mocking what the device (if ever made) will look like.
