BlackBerry CEO: I Would Take $19B For BBM

This is kind of a dumb thing to say ... OF COURSE you would take $19B for BBM. He'd be an idiot not to take that kind of cash.

With regards to BBM - which has around 85 million active users, compared to WhatsApp's 450 million-plus - Chen said: "I work for the shareholder. Standard answer. If somebody comes to me with $19 billion, I would definitely sell it. I would recommend to the board to take it."
