BlackBerry has just posted its latest earning report for the second quarter of 2014, and whilst the company is still making a loss, things are definitely looking up for BlackBerry.
BlackBerry made a quarterly net loss of $207 million, this compares to a net loss of $950 million for the same quarter last year, and the company’s CEO John Chen, who has made big changes at the company, is obviously steering it in the right direction.
BlackBerry’s mobile phone sales were down for the quarter to 2.1 million handsets, as opposed to 2.6 million handsets for the previous quarter. The company has just launched their new BlackBerry Passport this week, and it appears to be getting a good response, so smartphone sales could be up in the next quarter.
John Chen has been concentrating on growing the company’s services arm, and they managed to sell a total of 3.4 million licenses of their BlackBerry Enterprise Service in the quarter, this is almost three times the amount of licenses that were sold in the previous quarter.
If the company can keep things up, and they manage to sell more handsets with their new Passport smartphone, then they could end up being in profit by early 2015.
