Word on the tablet street is that RIM will be using an operating system developed by QNX Software Systems for its upcoming tablet, the BlackPad. This is interesting news because it means that RIM won’t be using its own BlackBerry 6 OS.
Last month RIM acquired the Internet rights to blackpad.com, according to the Whois database. We can’t wait to see how it all plays out with this OS. It’s an interesting move by the company.
