BlackBerry sticks to business as it unveils IoT plans, AT&T-exclusive Passport phone

Stephen Lawson | Jan. 8, 2015
The company announced a cloud-based platform for building and managing networks of things.

The first place BlackBerry will try to sell the IoT platform will be businesses that need to keep track of valuable things that move around a lot, such as the shipping and automotive industries. Later it plans to take the system beyond asset tracking and connected cars to other fields including energy and health care.

AT&T will offer the Passport for US$649.99 or $199.99 with a two-year agreement, as well as under AT&T Next payment plans for as little as $21.67 per month. It will sell the BlackBerry Classic for $419.99 or $49.99 with a two-year agreement, as well as on AT&T Next plans for as little as $14 per month. Exact shipping dates weren't provided.
