    Being the CEO of a smartphone company may sound like a dream job to many of us, but there's a big difference between running a firm seeing record sales or even a startup chock full of potential, and heading-up a company with sales that are in decline. Last fall, BlackBerry shuffled its leadership amidst talk of a possible buyout, bringing on John Chen to take reins. As BlackBerry introduced its new Z3 to Indonesia last week (above: shoppers line up to buy the Z3), Chen sat down with The Wall Street Journal to talk a little about being a “turnaround CEO,” budget-priced smartphones, and ...
