BlackBerry’s new CEO says he is “very interested” in trying to replicate some of the company’s signature security and enterprise productivity on rival platforms. “We’d love to do it,” he said when asked on a financial conference call about the possibility of expanding the BlackBerry platform to smartphones running Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android.
