Question The Astonishing Tribe (TAT)

Please Login to Remove!

Apparently RIM has acquired this company to redeisgn their UI for their future smartphones and Playbook. I've never heard of this company up until now.

Had you heard of QNX before RIM acquired them?

Nope and that's what was baffling to me because I knew they had acquired QNX so now why TAT unless QNX is just going to be the engine modules and TAT is going to be the UI portion of the modules that the developers will use down the road.

QNX = Back End.
TAT = Front End.

They're entirely different types of development.
