BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY)’s WatchDox and Blend Bag CTIA Super Mobility 2015 Awards


BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY)’s two enterprise products have won CTIA Super Mobility 2015 Awards in different categories. The awards were organized by CTIA- the Wireless Association. BlackBerry’s WatchDox by BlackBerry emerged top in its category while the BlackBerry Blend came in second in its category. However, BlackBerry’s other participating product, BES12 Cloud, struggled and ended with a dismal show as it emerged last among five finalists in its category.

BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY)’s finalists for this year’s CTIA Awards turned up mixed results, almost same as last year. In the 2015 CTIA Awards, WatchDox and Blend put up an exciting show to emerge first and second in their respective categories. Although BES12 Cloud made it to the finalist list of five, it emerged bottom.

Last year, it was almost the same story but with different casts. The BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY)’s Audi Virtual Cockpit, which is based on QNX and features in the 2015 Audi TT, topped in its category. The other BlackBerry enterprise solution, BES10, managed to take second place in its group. As such, the company had two wins in the 2014 CTIA Awards, just like in the 2015 CTIA Awards edition.

This year, different enterprise products put BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) on the map. People voted for the participating products to choose the winners.
