I've heard rumors they CAN'T make BES/BIS work on QNX. That the first QNX handsets will drop without it, playbook style.

The current issue is that QNX devices don't have PIN numbers. However, QNX 2.0 should resolve this issue. 2.0 is being worked on now and is rumored to be out soon, most likely before any handhelds are released.

Ummmm, if you say so

Google "smart phone market share" then read the comments on the various blogs. You have company. iPhone fanboys are in denial too.

Ahh - the fickle consumer world. Several friends went out and bought "Droids" at the Verizon store. Called me (from their house phone) to ask "how do I answer a call" and "how do I unlock it". Yep, the consumers sure have moved on.

I never said people are smart. I was just relating facts about consumer trends.
