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.

As stated in the main article, most other platforms have this kind of eyecandy (even 3rd party). Its wasted effort to compete with the same every other platform has. I really miss the innovation there.


There is nothing like that eye-candy available on Android, except if you count games. Even WP7, for all its elegance, doesn't pack that kind of bling.

Somehow I get the sense that we watched different videos. To my eyes, that demo suggests we are entering a new world of fluid, animated interactions unprecedented in current computing platforms. And all you guys can see is "been there, done that"?

@Moochman:
You have good points there and partly convinced me that this thing might not be that useless after all.

It´s just that this thing doesn´t get my blood boiling like BareMetal OS or Reactos does (for different reasons).

I love new user interfaces and experiences but stylish end user tablets are nothing i consider the invention of the century.

Maybe im expecting the future today and in the end it has sometimes to be done in small steps but sorry, i dont see a milestone there.
