Default Re: The BB Colt and QNX

From what I read is the reason they're putting Activesync support out of the box is that RIM currently doesn't have any support on the BES for QNX and this is why there is no native email app on the Playbook. They're planning on building a QNX only BES, but it won't be ready by the time this device is released. And I certainly hope that's not the case. A QNX only BES seems like a terrible idea. You would have to implement 2 BES servers, one for non-QNX devices and one for QNX devices. Seems like too much of a hassle.
