Video: QNX Talking About How They Power the BlackBerry PlayBook

Most of the video demos of the BlackBerry PlayBook have been done by the RIM side of the PlayBook team and we have not heard much from QNX since September. We have seen one or two demos with a QNX PlayBook in a car but those have been weak. Bla1ze over @CrackBerry spotted a video interview done by ARMDevices at Embedded World 2011 of a QNX rep showing off the PlayBook. The interviewer seems a bit confused about what to ask but the QNX rep does give an interesting take on how they have been empowering the PlayBook with features like Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) in the TI 4430 OMAP processor.

Let us know if you spot any other good videos. I am just waiting for RIM to finally release the device or at least offer up a release date!

  1. Me too! I’m waiting!

  2. Great video, its nice to hear how it all comes together, and not just rim promo videos

  3. I can’t find the link, but I came across another video from the same interviewer in which he gets a QNX guy to confirm that QNX is “linux-based”. However, there’s no documentation anywhere to support this … yet this was a question clearly asked and answered, and even confirmed.

    Which makes me wonder how much the booth-dude actually knew about what he was saying — or if he was just trying to simplify things for an interviewer who didn’t necessarily know enough to differentiate.
