  1. We see the seeds, we need the fruits now…

  2. QNX is the best. Keep them coming BBRY.

  3. QNX, a subsidiary of BlackBerry, doesn’t use BlackBerry devices to showcase developing technologies. Classic. BlackBerry, you HAVE to do better!! I mean, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the PlayBook’s OS QNX based??? Why couldn’t they have used a PlayBook to highlight the QNX tech? I know it’s basically off the market, but still. If not a PlayBook, at least use a BB10 device; Z10 or Z30. This oversight (or downright lack of attention) is inexcusable.

    • Because direction of Blackberry hardware products isn’t consumer anymore, it is enterprise. That said, QNX for car is consumer-oriented and it is better to show it off using a product the majority of consumers have (compared to, say, the product portfolio you listed) because people will overlook the notion of “oh, blackberry? hmm, pass” and think “oh, cool, new car software, and works on my [iphone|android|wp8]? tell me more”.
