PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's about time. RIM is in deep trouble, and is seeing its smartphone market share being eaten left and right by Android and iOS. After being more or less the equivalent of a deer caught in the headlights, the company has now finally unveiled its answer to the original iPhone - 5 years too late.

I am rather certain that QNX will not die with the mobile phones. It is still widely used (perhaps even gaining) in no-fault-allowed equpment like human life support aparatuses, space related mahines and other vital eqipment. Given that they is not using stock qnx, but rather modified and with most if not all non-needed features turned off.

The customization possibillities of the qnx kernel is remarkable.

As well as in the on-board entertainment systems of numerous expensive german cars, which is probably a fairly lucrative market.
