PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless RIM just announced some pretty disastrous financial results, but in the press release, there's something very telling, and quite worrisome for those of us rooting for the Canadian company: BlackBerry 10 has been delayed until the first quarter of 2013. I don't want to call it at this point, but it ain't looking good.

Damn it. I've been waiting for decades for QNX to become successful - yes, decades - I first used QNX back in the mid-80's on the Canadian-made Burroughs ICON (Microtel).

Actually, as a Canadian, this failure of RIM comes as no surprise. It's just another in a long line. Once a Canadian company becomes large and successful, it invariably gets destroyed through incompetence, American buyouts or mysterious conspiracy. ATI? Nortel? Avro? Inco? Alcan? Eatons, The Bay, Tim Hortons? Where are the Canadian car companies? (even frigging Madagascar has its own car company)

There is no way that QNX dies with RIM. Stop fooling yourself, QNX will be the priced money cow when if rim goes belly up. The patent portfolio is enormous the product is good, and used in more places than anyone think. The qnx division has posted profits for 30 years almost, it will not die with RIM. Unless someone calls the "evil" card ofcourse.
