Your take on app development is interesting. I know that QNX can be locked down pretty tight but I didn't realize that that might hamper app developers.

QNX is being integrated into many areas such as the automobile industry and who knows where next. Military uses. Industrial. TH has stated that the future of BB lies in mobile computing. It'll be interesting to see what he means by that.

BTW, I've been spoiled by multitasking. I run multiple cross referenced programs all the time. Swipe, swipe, swipe. Good stuff.
Well now I know where you get some of your misguided ideas, you don't read what is written.

Where did I say QNX hampers app developers?

Already used by the military, industrical, medical, communications. It has been arround since 1982. My first exposure to the OS came in 1987. Most of the features for which one would choose to use QNX as the OS are not available to a third party developer.
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
