    This company is hemorraghing talent left, right and centre and this ‘deal’ was long rumoured so it’ll have very little impact on perceptions or reality for that matter.
    Interesting side note that I never noticed before but the fact that Chen is both CEO and chairman of the board here is deeply troubling. Those two roles in no way should be intertwined , especially given the history here of the BOD kissing managements a$$ and refusing to take action before its too late. Proper oversight is needed in something like this.

      100% agree. Heck, maybe Apple would have bought QNX

      The pumpers of this company are salivating today like the fools they are thinking this is something groundbreaking. Bottom line is Blackberry gives this tech away for peanuts so there is no money to be made from this in any meaningful way.

      Yeah… because no other company on the planet other than BlackBerry has ever had a CEO that was also their Board chair. It is hilarious how you can’t stand any positive news to be posted about BlackBerry…. you have to race right here to post your usual negativity.

    I reckons this here automobile will try to drive down a drain; it’s in it’s DNA software…

    RIP Ford

      BlackBerry QNX is in 60 million cars today. Would you like all those other companies to RIP also?

      Partnership with Blackberry is a death sentence

    • xBURK

      BlackBerry QNX is also in millions of medial devices. Not one person has died because of it. Clearly the leading edge of software security. Nice try though.
