QNX: Trusted for Decades

QNX_Subsidiary_Logo_Primary_RGBLately, a lot of the buzz around QNX involves the automotive world. As the industry’s trends in innovation turn to software and mobile data systems, this powerhouse OS has begun to receive the accolades and attention it deserves. But BlackBerry wants you to know QNX has been here for decades, just not in your vehicle.

A new article at Inside BlackBerry highlights the software’s history as the chosen OS for medical devices.

…since the 1980s the QNX Neutrino OS has been powering a wide array of medical devices, many of which are Class III life-critical systems…

This legacy in the medical field is possible because QNX meets the international standard IEC 62304, a standard that governs the development of software through its release. By meeting this benchmark of excellence, medical professionals and decision makers in the field know the QNX is a trusted and reliable OS. The tradition QNX began thirty years ago continues today as it remains a leading innovator in the field.

    QNX also provided the “potent mix of speed, reliability, and flexibility” that is at the heart of our beloved BB10 OS. Why didn’t BlackBerry do more to promote the QNX-related merits of BB10, so people would have an idea of the power under the hood? Since QNX is such an integral part of medical and space devices, imagine the possibilities were BB10 to survive, mature and be further developed for our BlackBerry smartphones! We really could be carrying the mobile computing devices once envisioned for BlackBerry. Instead, BlackBerry is cramming the inferior Android OS down our throats. SMH.

    Were BlackBerry to continue to develop BB10, and make virtual keyboard devices to take the Zs to the next level, I’d be willing to pay a reasonable annual “subscription rate” to use it and support its further development.
