    RIM Confirms QNX Will Make Its Way Onto BlackBerry Devices, But Not Anytime Soon


    RIM president a co-chief executive, Mike Lazarid, confirms during the CES 2011 show that the highly anticpiated operating software of the BlackBerry PlayBook, QNX, will in fact make its way onto BlackBerry smartphones as part of RIM's 10-year plan; the devices, which have not yet been created, are already being dubbed the "superphones" in lieu of the term smartphone. So, what can we expect?

    Although Lazarid confirms the software will eventually be brought to consumers, he says not to expect it anytime soon. Here's what he had to say about the long wait:

    "Putting in all the infrastructure, building the relationships, building the supply channels, the infrastructure, the distribution, the manufacturing capacity, that’s what we did! And we continue to grow, right? What we’re setting up is for the next 10 years of BlackBerry."
    RIM is confident that they "can grow with where the market is going as opposed to where the market is today." Sounds like a challenge. RIM never was a company to be the most "fun" to your everyday consumers, but then again, they never claimed to be. That is until their recent release of the OS 6.0 and the future QNX on the PlayBook and future phones.

    "We’re always thinking ahead, we’re always planning ahead."
    At this point, it sounds like they're simply planning their timing. What do you think?

    this is my comment from another site...
    "I think good-oll mr BIG mike is getting things done the wrong way... His 10-year strategy in quarterly changing business doesnt sound like supersmart... Actually the other way!! I do believe that there are peoplez in rim who do care, do think, do live with there eyes open.. My believe is mr mike aint 1 of them... Remains to be seen how the year turns round,BUT- predictions aren't promising for rim...Anyway 1thig is certain in business.. MIKE aint STEVE , and STEVE aint BILL..
    So, i'll wait for them finnish dudes to got things goin again..."

    And to tell ya honestly, I dont understand what folks at RIM did the past 2.5-3 years.. This line-up of current phones, all take root from the great king(of them all) BB9000- hardware vise, !! OS-s on other note, 4.7 is very similar to 5.0 and this 6 is making the difference allright, but, common rim-guys, start using ur grey-cells again...

    Good points, the market went another way and RIM is playing catchup. RIM just kept refreshing a good design, but it wasn't enough to hold on to their base.
