PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I doubt Research In Motion really knew what hit them back when the iPhone launched. I doubt they really knew what hit them when Android steamrolled the smartphone market. And, today, I still doubt they really know what the heck they are supposed to do to turn their sinking ship around. Update: RIM contacted us with a statement on the matter - they state everything in the BGR article is wrong. Read on for the full statement.

What of QNX

What's going to happen to QNX if RIM goes bust? QNX is a fantastic little OS. Hate to see it go another open source route then oblivion. I for one would like to see RIM succeed to a certain degree and I look forward to purchasing a QNX based BB phones. Even Blackberry Playbook is fav of mine when it comes to tablets. It's refreshing. A few caveats here and there but nothing too bad. Maybe what's wrong is those 2 bozos running RIM. Are they necessary at all?

QNX may be a newcomer in the arena of phone oses, but is strongly established in the industry computing and telecomunications.
It could easily become a self sustainable spinoff again, heck, Blackberry could reduce itself to supporting existing QNX customers.
