This year in the BlackBerry Booth at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas there was a Porsche 911 convertible on display loaded with QNX and BlackBerry technology, including mounted BlackBerry PlayBooks and custom digital displays. Check out the video to view a demonstration of the features and functionality straight from the QNX team. The Porsche won Best in Show for CES 2012 in the Auto Tech category.
I've been closely following the latest developments taking place at RIM with great interest, none more than the Porsche 911 Convertible loaded with Blackberry and QNX technology showcased at CES earlier this month. It dawned on me that this concept scared the life out of Apple and Google. "How so?" one might ask. Simple, it highlights the superior power and flexibility of QNX, which runs everything from nuclear power plants to the Playbook OS. The Porsche 911 Concept demonstrates that all QNX based eco systems can theoretically achieve a seamless interface with each other, barring safety and security protocols of course. It's easy to envisage BB10 phones and tablets being the default choice of organisations using QNX based technology as these devices will be optimised to allow for total integration with the various eco systems once the necessary protocols are activated. RIM needs to capitalise on QNX by implementing strategies such as this, it's unlikely Apple and Google can achieve similar results using their current operating systems.
