BlackBerry also partnered with NantHealth to launch an HBox device designed to capture and transmit medical information between patients and doctors. It's powered by a QNX variant called Neutrino.
Finally, BlackBerry unveiled a new AT&T-exclusive version of the 4.5-in. display Passport smartphone, this one with rounded corners, instead of the sharper corners in the original released last fall. AT&T wanted a device customized for its use and the rounded corners provided the solution, BlackBerry CEO John Chen said. AT&T said it will carry the phone at a price of $50 with a two-year wireless agreement or no annual commitment for $420. Other options are also available.
