The BlackBerry CEO has criticized the iPhones battery life and called the users of the smartphone "wall huggers" when speaking to reporters at an event.
John Chen who was newly appointed as the CEO of BlackBerry after Thornstein Heins stepped down, has been quick to go on the offensive against companies such as T-Mobile, and also accept his own companys shortcomings with BB OS 10. He even showed willingness to sell BBM in a deal similar to WhatsApp after reports of Facebooks acquisition came out.
Now, when asked to comment about the iPhones growing popularity at the recent Oasis Montgomery conference, John was quick to jokingly reply that, "I call you guys wall-huggers," further claiming that the iPhones battery drains pretty quickly and users are left searching for power outlets everywhere they go.
BlackBerry has lost its once dominenet marketshare over the years to iOS, Android and to some extent Windows Phone based smartphones, but that has not dissuaded the companys CEO from pointing out the shortcomings of the top smartphone maker.
