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.

OTOH, if they ported the API's to Linux, they might still have developers come 2013.


No offense, but do you know anything about BB development? RIM uses J2ME with a bit of custom stuff underneath (not much really). Its java. The NATIVE api is java...

The kernel they run is about as relevant to a developer as the color of the case.
