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.

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.

"The priced money cow" probably isn't the most fortunate description... IIRC, RIM didn't pay that much for QNX - so the revenue and profits of QNX (and/or potential revenues from patents) can't be that high.

(but yeah, it's unlikely to be left to die, if only because it's used in quite a few "important" places - and I imagine those have some deal which will, more or less, warrant at least continued maintenance, no matter what)
