RIM will go ahead and name its QNX platform "BBX" which means that it will be BBX powering BlackBerry PlayBooks and the new line of BlackBerry SuperPhones that we are expected to get a first look at in a matter of days at DevCon...

Rim please don't let QNX/BBX dies like webOS has cause their both great OS got good user interfaces.
Now just come up with cool hardwear to house this awesome OS,then you'll be back in business up and running

Hopefully, RIM will wake up to the need to diversify from their portrait-centric UI -as admittedly shown by both the Torch 9860 slate and the Playbook - and produce some LARGE-SCREENED SIDE-SLIDERS with HARDWARE QWERTYs!!
Amazing that RIM, which is enterprise-driven has not yet woken to the fact that a high-resolution 4.3/4.5/4.8/5.0 - inch screened qwerty slider will obviate the need to try and compete in the Tablet space plus be FAR more comfortable for execs and consumers to actually CARRY AROUND and UTILIZE!!
On-screen keyboards are for short replies to emails and notes; a proper hardware qwerty combined with powerful processors, large high-resolution screens, plentiful RAM and BB encryption and email would be a KILLER laptop replacement for a LOT of use cases!
