PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless What many of us wondered the moment Research In Motion announced the PlayBook's QNX-based operating system has now transpired: the Canadian smartphone and tablet company has announced BBX, their QNX-based operating system for both smartphones and tablets - in other words, the expansion of the PlayBook operating system into smartphones.

Tell that to the millions of users who were (rightfully) upset when RIM had a network outage in Europe. They didn't jump ship so fast, and it's a reason they even still use the platform. RIM sells phones and service. The other manufacturers don't sell a service. For example, I don't know the uptime for the various app worlds, but I'm betting that no one would care if HTC had an app-world crash.
