So for all of you that are very excited about the new Blackberry Playbook, you should really be hyped over the new OS from QNX. Blackberry Developers blog has put up a nice interview with Dan Dodge, the co founder and CEO of QNX Software Solutions. We are all very excited for the possibilities that this new OS will bring to the Blackberry platform.
First off, you can develop some really cool apps for BlackBerry PlayBook using Adobe Mobile AIR, Adobe Flash, and HTML5. Under the hood, we have a 1GHz dual core processor, accelerated 3D graphics, HD video, and a 7″ multi-touch widescreen. Think of the potential for applications that can combine all these technologies!
The new OS is built on the QNX Neutrino architecture which should make Blackberry multitasking even more dominant in the industry.
The QNX Neutrino architecture can also support true multitasking on multicore hardware — in fact, its multicore prowess has been performance-proven in the world’s highest-capacity routers. As a result, it can run multiple applications simultaneously, while delivering very high performance. Multitasking might be new to other tablet platforms, but for us, it’s bred in the bone.
All around the Playbook sounds like an awesome tablet and we are very excited to get our hands on them! what do you guys think of the Playbook tablet?? Please drop a comment or head over to the Nerdberry Forums and get the debate started!
