Blackberry unveils IoT play

Struggling device vendor Blackberry has announced a new collection of initiatives targeting the Internet of Things, which the firm hopes will enable it to exploit the QNX operating system it bought in 2010. The vendor, which recorded a $5.87bn loss for the 2014 financial year, described the new campaign—dubbed Project Ion— as “a cornerstone of BlackBerry’s vision to offer end-to-end solutions for the Internet of Things.”
