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.

"Do you have some reason to expect QNX kernel to perform better than Linux kernel?"

The QNX kernel is a thing of genius and is a different type of kernel model than the linux kernel. The linix kernel is a Monolithic kernel, while QNX is a microkernel and I personally feel that it is better suited for this type of environment. I am slightly bias, but the only reason i fell in love with QNX is because i've tried sooooo soooo many OS's and while they all have their merits, I keep coming back to QNX for many reasons.

in the real time space it does preform better, even than real time adaptations of the linux kernel (wind river's and others)
