General Development "BlackBerry 10 is completely different from previous BlackBerry operating systemsâ€"with good reason. Its core assets come from a company named QNX, which Research In Motion acquired in 2010. Blackberry 10 features include 'live tiles' that dynamically refresh with new information, as well as a revamped keyboard and security upgrades. But what really makes or breaks a phone is the quality (and quantity) of its third-party apps. So what we'll do here is look at the programming API. That will give us a good grip on what app developers can do with the platform."

Not true.

The native BB10 SDK comes as C *and* C++ API.
The latter one is called "Cascades", which is mostly based on QML and a Qt port, which itself rely on the C API below.

And this C API is not only the POSIX one, far from it.
You don't believe me?
