QNX As of April 2010, a silent change was made on Foundry27, users with a myQNX account could no longer checkout/update their copies of the QNX SVN repositories and a vague Wiki page was created "detailing" some licencing clarifications.

I have to disagree. RIM could potentially have a TON to gain from QNX. Using QNX as a base for their blackberry OS would put them in a great position. If for nothing else than QNX is being used as the multimedia system in a lot of cars and it would make it dead simple to integrate your blackberry device to your car. phone/car integration is key these days (or is starting ot be).

That all aside, QNX is more stable and can have a smaller footprint than the current blackberry OS.

as for HP and Palm. HP gained not only WebOS, but all of Palm's patents, and thats HUGE!
