BlackBerry Colt is first QNX Phone
 
 

The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet runs on QNX. Everybody is pretty pleased with the capabilities of this operating system. Now everybody is waiting for RIM to bring QNX to their BlackBerry smartphones. We know it is going to happen in 2012. Today BGR reports that they have learned that the BlackBerry Colt will be the first QNX BlackBerry. 

The BlackBerry Colt comes besides its terrible name, possibly also with not the most powerful CPU options. According to the report, RIM will launch QNX phones with single-core CPUs.

The BlackBerry Colt is supposed to arrive already in the first quarter of 2012. It really is the question if RIM can bring back the BlackBerry to its old glory. Apple is going to have a massive Q4 this year and with the introduction of iMessage will also make an even bigger impact on business users. The Colt needs to be a real sharp shooter out of the gate or its game over.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
