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.

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

I'm not talking just about the kernel (neither QNX or Linux are just about the kernel). You could layer BB API's over a full Linux system. I've said it before, but RIM should have implemented the full proprietary BB stack over the MeeGo core.
