CES 2015: BlackBerry


BlackBerry and its subsidiary QNX had a somewhat small, yet very impressive showing at CES 2015 this year. Firstly, they revealed BBM for Android Wear with support for iOS and the iWatch possibly coming in the near future.

They also announced a re-designed BlackBerry Passport for AT&T with rounded corners, which will be coming alongside the BlackBerry Classic in the upcoming days.

However, the company’s biggest announcement was the unveiling of its Internet of Things Platform. Formally, known as Project Ion, this initiative will bring powerful data collection, cloud services, and more to help mobilize automated work forces for a wide variety of industries.

Finally, the QNX platform, formally announced even more partners for integrated technologies in cars, and infotainment displays with new partners like LG, Volkswagen, Ford, Qualcomm and more. They also announced the HBox with NantHealth, which serves as a medical hub, for newer machines and older legacy computers, that are used in medicals centers all over the world. That will be used for data on patients to be transferred to doctors to better help with patient care. All of which will be powered by the QNX OS.
