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.

Is it really so difficult to talk positively about something, without bashing something else?

For the record, that those OSs have no place there is just a lie. Many mission critical things are running those, like it or not, although they may not be suited for some tasks, they excel in others.

But I suppose you already know...
