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.

what a shame

I was expecting more from RIM.
It's a shame for them and a shame for the industry. The more competition the better.

iOS and Andoid are doing quite well and the future is bright for both platforms.
Windows 7 is a very pleasant surprise, definitely not in the same league as the others though. And at some point they should start expanding a bit more in the market, for the sakes of both MS and Nokia.

Well, MS makes some pretty nice money off Android. It really does not matter Windows Phone 7 does at least financially.
