RIM/BlackBerry acquired QNX in April 2010. QNX a global leader in software platforms for in car telematics and infotainment market.

As many of your have heard from the recent report from Bloomberg, that Amazon will be entering the smartphone arena. According the Bloomberg, they will be competing directly with Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android OS. Having read the article in great detail, it seems that Amazon has three options on how they will compete in this crowded arena.
The first option, is manufacturing a low cost, low end hardware smartphone device with a rich customized Android OS similar to what they did with the Kindle Fire.
The Second option, is jumping onboard on the new Windows 8 Phone OS that Microsoft will be releasing.
Note: The first two options will automatically make Amazon’s phone similar to any other phone in the market that uses Android & Windows Phone as their Operating System.
The third option, would be to create a strategic partnership or buy RIM to utilize their coveted and superior Operating System, QNX (Now called BlackBerry 10).
Let’s give a little background on QNX. QNX is a micro kernal operating system that is used in 80 to 90 percent of the cars on the road (For example, QNX Cloud Porsche Carrera Concept Car and The QNX Jeep Wrangler), it is used in Airplanes, it is used in high-speed rails, and is the foundation of Cisco’s IOS-XR and IOS Software Modularity. It is a very secure and stable operating system that can multi-task like no other. This is primarily the reason RIM purchased QNX on April 09, 2010. RIM will be launching BlackBerry 10 on its smartphone in the 1st quarter of 2013.
If Amazon wants to be a serious player in the smartphone arena, it needs to differentiate itself from the other players out there. Two ways to do this is to license BlackBerry 10 from RIM or purchase RIM.
