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.

I also went to Blackberry after "jumping ship" from HP. Palm stopped producing Treo's and thus left a void in the power user smartphone market. The Androids and iPhones of the wold are more "eye candy" to me than power user's tools. And for this reason, you see a couple of Pro this or that being made (Galaxy Pro, Droid Pro) but those are still just Android under the hood.

However, I, unlike old time BB users, do not link my personal account to the BB datacenter. I use a third party email client that allows connecting to IMAPS and SMTPS directly called Logicmail. It's one reason that I was not personally bothered by the datacenter problems that RIM had.
