BlackBerry said Friday it fell deeper into the red in the past quarter as the struggling smartphone maker unveiled a new manufacturing partnership and a revamped organizational structure. The company also unveiled a five-year partnership with Foxconn, described as "the world’s largest manufacturer of electronic products and components," targeted at emerging countries.
