BlackBerry, Qualcomm in $10 Million Round for Facial Recognition Firm

Viewdle, the facial recognition company with its origins in the Soviet military, has closed a $10 million funding round  with the the BlackBerry VC fund and Qualcomm, David Kaplan at paidContent reports on the deal this morning.

In July, I interviewed John Albright, co-managing partner of the BlackBerry fund and its investment in Viewdle.  He explains how the Viewdle technology will be integrated into handsets from several manufacturers next year.  

When we reported the investment in July, the amount of the investment and other participants on the round were not disclosed.

I interviewed him at the paidContent mobile conference in Manhattan.
