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.

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).


MeeGo has an in-vehicle infotainment profile as well. I have to admit I don't know much about that, but I believe integration with those systems doesn't require kernel level compatibility. If QNX is using X (or VNC?) in these systems, I believe MeeGo (or any other Linux) would be a drop-in replacement.
