BlackBerry CEO: T-Mobile iPhone promotion “inappropriate and ill-conceived” [Update: T-Mobile statement]

Over the weekend, T-Mobile took some heat over its attempts to tempt BlackBerry users away from their beloved devices and switch to iPhone. This – of course – did not go down well with the BBerry faithful. Although John Legere was quick to apologize and state he was looking in to it, it didn’t stop BlackBerry’s new CEO, John Chen from stepping in … [read full article]

Legere okay with Sprint/T-Mobile merger as long as he’s in charge?

John Legere has become one of the most prominent figures in the wireless industry since taking over at T-Mobile around 16 months ago. Thanks to his style, demeanor and business approach, he – and T-Mobile with him – has become unavoidable. Whether or not its just a public persona for the sole purpose of personifying T-Mobile’s new-found Maverick brand will be argued for a while yet.
