BlackBerry Ltd. CEO John Chen said Tuesday he would consider selling BBM, the company’s messaging service, according to different media reports Tuesday. CNBC quoted Chen in an interview as saying: "If somebody comes to me with $19 billion, I would definitely sell it. I would recommend to the board to take it." Chen was referencing the $19 billion US Facebook Inc. said last week it had agreed to pay for WhatsApp Inc., another messaging service. A Bloomberg article quoted Chen as telling Bloomberg TV he wants to wait until BBM is built up into a more powerful competitor in the messenger-service market before he tries to sells it. “The potential is going to be huge,” Chen was quoted as telling Bloomberg. “Until we get to the point that we can showcase that potential, it is a bit too early to think about getting our $19 billion.” BlackBerry announced a number of new product offerings Tuesday from the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, including a new encrypted version of BBM aimed at enterprise customers. “Nobody has a secure messaging infrastructure, and we’re the only ones who have it,” Chen told Bloomberg.
