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.

If they had made enough of an investment in rim hardware to be upset by the outage, there is no way they could have "jumped ship". It was a week ago. I'm guessing it would take longer than that to make such a decision that has that much of an impact on your business, and then even longer to actually implement it.

I would agree that no one would care if a hypothetical app store run by HTC crashed. Unless they were hypothetically using it. And they hypothetically were relying on the app store for business critical messaging. But I would think any hypothetical company doing as such, would have hypothetically killed itself much earlier performing a different hypothetical blunder involving hypothetical elephants and hypothetical land mines.
