BlackBerries runing a Hybrid QNX OS Coming This Summer!?!

Peter Misek an analyst  for Jefferies & Co stated we may see a  “hybrid” operating system of sorts before the end of this year, perhaps by the summer, using kernel code from QNX underneath the existing BlackBerry OS 6.” This is all based on “historical discussions” and a review of BlackBerry code, Misek points to technical limitations in BlackBerry devices, such as a memory ceiling of 256 megabytes. That will need to be conquered if forthcoming devices, such as the “Storm 3,” the “Bold Touch,” and the “Torch 2” can support 512 megabytes or more of RAM.” Hmm, I am a huge fan of hybrid OS’s so this really has my attention. If this hybrid OS come to full circle I see the RIM taking a giant leap forward! Please feel free to share your thoughts on this post.
