PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless RIM just announced some pretty disastrous financial results, but in the press release, there's something very telling, and quite worrisome for those of us rooting for the Canadian company: BlackBerry 10 has been delayed until the first quarter of 2013. I don't want to call it at this point, but it ain't looking good.

And killing QNX in the process, my god NOOOOOOOO!


Damn it. I've been waiting for decades for QNX to become successful - yes, decades - I first used QNX back in the mid-80's on the Canadian-made Burroughs ICON (Microtel).

Actually, as a Canadian, this failure of RIM comes as no surprise. It's just another in a long line. Once a Canadian company becomes large and successful, it invariably gets destroyed through incompetence, American buyouts or mysterious conspiracy. ATI? Nortel? Avro? Inco? Alcan? Eatons, The Bay, Tim Hortons? Where are the Canadian car companies? (even frigging Madagascar has its own car company)
