    RIM VP Says QNX OS Will Replace BlackBerry Operating System


    During a breakfast event at the BlackBerry Developers Conference, a RIM VP said that the QNX operating system that was shown on the BlackBerry Playbook will be finding its way on to future BlackBerry devices. During the conversation the next BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 7 would be a stepping stone until a full switch could me made.

    After seeing the video of the BlackBerry PlayBook in action, I am really getting excited to see what RIM can do with future devices. Whether BlackBerry 7 will be a stepping stone or not, I really want to see something fresh from RIM. We will have to wait and see what OS ends up on the LTE version of the BlackBerry Storm that is rumored to be out next year. I am hoping that it will be a killer device.

    If RIM can blend a new OS with impressive hardware do you think they can push ahead of the competition?

    this sounds too good to be true; whats the catch? other than the fact we have to wait for Blackberry 8 to see it.

    you're right that's how we get stuck with devices with so many bugs, trust me I think its a good move however not at the expense of the people. As a S2 user I have no idea what OS6 is like and from the sounds of this I may never know. If its a BB then we all need to share the same level of OS's

    Don't mean to sound upset or anything its just getting old constantly seeing device after device being kicked to the curb because RIM refuse to fix bugs, so the answer is ALWAYS the release of something new. whatever

    sorry guys but i'm all for releasing something new. what they have out right now is not worth fixing in my opinion. i vote get the OS functionality up to scratch first and then refine it.

    i do however agree that the new OSes should b released for all currently supported products, i cant believe the hardware is that different seeing the device specs are near identical...but i could b wrong.

    Uh oh, this is looking bad. The QNX OS reminds me of the PalmOS. On a tablet that's fine, however device wise, meh.

    based on their write up, it should be a sound OS: QNX - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    it also appears to reach more developer communities with its links to Unix/NetBSD and Eclipse development stuff.
