  • Is Apple Using BlackBerry's QNX? Yes [View article]
    "I assume General Motors (GM) and Chrysler also want to have CarPlay installed, if they would want to sell cars from now on. "

    They have OnStar and uConnect, but powered by QNX.
    Adding Apple CarPlay to QNX is like adding any other feature. QNX also has Miricast, which would allow BlackBerry10 users (except Z10s) to cast their phone onto the screen in so equipped cars.

    And BlackBerry probably won't toot their horn that they came up with it first.

    Does iOS run the infotainment system? No.
    What runs the infotainment system for 60% if new vehicles? QNX
    Does QNX support Miricast, Apple CarPlay and Google apps? Yes

    If you have one of those 60% of new cars with QNX that has Apple CarPlay support, the CarPlay runs on top of QNX. It is that simple.

    QNX confirms that Apple CarPlay is running on top of QNX.

  • WhatsApp Vs. BBM Security? Let Google Decide [View article]
    My unlocked Z30 works on AT&T fine. I have an STA100-5 model, which gets LTE in some areas here in Raleigh, but gives me the option to move to T-Mobile. The STA100-1 Should get all AT&T LTE signals, but I'd harder to find.

    Okay. But, still. If you can use QNX to integrate iOS features (and even apps, you can do the research on that one), then why even use the iOS 'integration' layer.

    To clarify, if you run BB10, Android and iOS apps and your phone and tablet connects, why bother complicating your system with anything else besides QNX?

    You can read any article and it clearly says "integration of iOS" from the device to the dashboard. Apple's solution is not taking over the infotainment system, but putting a layer on top of existing system.

    Apple's solution is a layer on top of QNX.
    QNX/BB10 can already run Android apps

    Why would any company switch to a less featured and possibly buggy system. All of Microsoft's couldn't keep Ford blind to reality.

    "BlackBerry's commercial operating system QNX has the potential to become the industry standard for powering in-car technologies"

    Is 60% of all new cars the standard? Or does it have to reach 100%?

    Daimler AG and AirBus just signed up for BES10.

    I'm hope the Air Force is rethinking their iOS phone purchase after the latest security leak.

  • BlackBerry Is At A Critical Point [View article]
    I'm guessing all the write-offs were on the Z10.

    Q10 is what you mean, there is no Q30 (yet).

  • Even More Good News For BlackBerry [View article]
    Speak with Apple so that they can put their iOS gui on top of QNX back end? Which is what Apple was offering.

    Why, that's genius! Unless you talk to a tech guy, then they would say, " Why that's idiotic!"

    Imagine?

    BlackBerry Blend is probably just around the corner.

  • BlackBerry - Is BBM Really Worth Nothing? [View article]
    That's where BBM Channels comes in. If Twitter and Pinterest and Facebook had a love child it would be Channels. And it wouldn't be too hard to put ads or have corporate paid Channels

    .5% of 4 billion.

    How many customers does your company have?

    My cheap little Creative Labs mp3 player does the same thing. But, it doesn't auto-tune the local stations like my Z30 does.
