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.

How many of those that have commented use and Android based device but would never run a Linux client at home.

QNX has not been a consumer level system until now. It's been tried and proven as a platform for power plant operations. It's been in development for almost 30 years. I wouldn't dismiss it so quickly.

I wonder how many jelly beans it would take to fill the Atlantic ocean.

BB ( a company that is quickly losing its revenue stream ) has tried to use QNX to make a consumer level system ( the playbook ) with poor results. I am not expecting much from them.
