Blackberry May Design Bacteria-free Handsets For Hospitals

BlackBerry CEO John Chen has indicated that the company may design bacteria-free handsets aimed at the healthcare industry. “Health-care workers have to be worried about one less thing to wipe down,” he said.

He made the comment at Canada's Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital, where the company unveiled a pilot project aimed at providing the hospital staff with a portable messaging and alert system.

BlackBerry, which has partnered with ThoughtWire and Cisco Systems for the project, will be providing the software and devices for it.

This comes just a day after Chen confirmed that the company is open to developing an Android phone, but would create such a go only if they can create the phone secure enough.
