BlackBerry creates new unit for potential high-growth assets

TORONTO, Aug 18 (Reuters) – BlackBerry Ltd said on
Monday it has created a new unit to house what many consider to
be among its most promising assets – cryptographic applications,
its QNX embedded software and Project Ion platform for
connecting devices.

The Canadian smartphone maker, which CEO John Chen is trying
to revamp, said Sandeep Chennakeshu will start immediately as
president of the BlackBerry Technology Solutions unit. The
division will also include a portfolio of 44,000 patents and the
Paratek antenna tech company purchased by BlackBerry in 2012.
