PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Fascinating stuff, but not entirely unexpected. As most of you will know, BlackBerry maker Research In Motion is working on a tablet dubbed the BlackPad, and according to several sources reporting to Bloomberg, the device will ship with software written by QNs Software Systems, which RIM purchased earlier this year.

I happen to like QNX myself, but I find it hard to imagine it as the basis for a tablet-top where it's all about the interface. Sure, it could be done, but it would building that interface and the APIs for user apps.... well it seems like a lot of work when other OSs--Android, Chrome, MeeGo, WebOS, etc.--already come with all the interface trimmings.
