PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Fascinating stuff, but not entirely unexpected. As most of you will know, BlackBerry maker Research In Motion is working on a tablet dubbed the BlackPad, and according to several sources reporting to Bloomberg, the device will ship with software written by QNs Software Systems, which RIM purchased earlier this year.

Interesting how you twist your own words in retrospect in a desperate attempt to keep your argument (which was based on the alleged consumption of crack cocaine within RIM) valid.
First you claimed that RIM should use Linux to keep developers and after your argument has been debunked you now say that RIM should switch to Linux to cut their R&D costs....

I think with your "expertise" you should apply for the job of RIM boss. Judging from your comments the company would likely bankrupt within a year...

Possibly, esp. since I know nothing of running a company. What seems idiocy on first sight may make total business sense.

I've changed my opinion on the QNX tablet, even. It may be the right move for RIM, business-wise, even if it doesn't make sense when you look at the technology as-such.

But let's see the tablet come to market first. It would be the worst of all worlds - proprietary like iPad, but without applications.
