The time is slowly ticking away til we finally see the announcement of BlackBerry 10 and the new devices. If you are anything like us you are patiently (or maybe not so patiently) waiting to get your hands on BlackBerry 10. However the truth is you may already be using BlackBerry 10 in your everyday activities. The Inside BlackBerry Blog has posted a nice little write-up about how you may already be “Living with QNX”. From things like the BlackBerry PlayBook and all the way to the interface in your car, QNX which is the building block of BlackBerry 10, may be playing a role in your life that you are not aware of.
Let’s see how QNX technology already brings elements of BlackBerry 10 into your life:
- QNX technology in your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet: The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet’s true multitasking ability is part of its DNA. QNX is a major developer of Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) technology, which helped lead to Peek and Flow in application switching – what Thorsten Heins called “the new design paradigm.”
- QNX technology in your car: The Washington Post recently called QNX “the future of in-car tech” while taking a look at the QNX CAR application platform. The QNX CAR platform enables automakers to make highly connected and customizable infotainment systems using the same web standards embraced by BlackBerry 10. If you’ve ever used OnStar in a General Motors automobile or ConnectedDrive in a BMW, you’ve used a small piece of the instant access that QNX technology helps brings to BlackBerry 10 devices.
