    Without reading the article, my guess is: BB11

    One step at a time, but it looks like they've coined a term for their verticals and embedded systems and it's M2M, it's a long road and no one wants to give them the time of day to lay the foundation, here's hoping.

    I say let them carry on "under the radar" as BaconMunch said. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, they will come out with ground breaking innovation, after innovation, after innovation. I love what they are doing by diversifying and proving, hopefully, that they are not some one trick pony but a whole stable with many tricks up their sleeve. We are a long ways off for these things so hopefully BB10 launches well, and is accepted by many so that the funding, and infrastructure will be there to push them forward.

    Great article.

    The possibility for expansion is the reason i have hope for Rim, not because of their prospects in the smartphone industry. That's not to say i dont think hty'll be a major player in smartphones, but their real money will come from industry.

    None of this information is really new. Mike L was talking about all this stuff when he bought QNX and announced the Playbook. The thing is, RIM is way behind Microsoft and even Apple in this area. Microsoft is making a play to make Windows Power everything in your home and car. Apple is working with 9 of the worlds top 10 automakers to get Siri into cars. Google as well. They are working on home automation, and they already power TVs and media players and have a game system coming soon.

    RIM has great tech, but it's not like everyone else hasn't already had the same idea and in Microsoft's case already has an Xbox in your living room and a couple PCs in home.

    That's why I think RIM needs some one like Sony as a partner to make their vision happen. Sony is already big in gaming, home electronic and automotive infotainment. Many parallels. If any company licenses BB 10 and partners with RIM Sony makes the most sense based on what RIM hopes to accomplish with the platform

    I totally agree. I think RIM wants to keep things in house on the mobile front but expanding OS10 or a version of it will need a partner. I see Sony as the best well rounded opportunity.

    Great so we can have people driving around in their cars with Siri and apple maps telling them where to go...

    I agree that RIM should team up with a Japanese company, seeing how advance their technologies are. It will help to bolster in this new M2M RIM plans for in the future. Sony is losing heavily to Samsung at the moment but I think that will make it a good target company to partner with as they may be more open to partnership to help stabilize their own market share. As for cars, Toyota would be the target given it now holds the number 1 spot in car production.

    Who cares! Not a single one of those cars with QNX software on board will add a single thing to BB 10.

    While RIM plans to be a leader in machine to machine communications and that is likely what will replace the carrier fees they currently collect, they still need a consumer facing offering to sell hardware. They still need a GE or Whirlpool to put Their software into their appliances. They still need some one to put it in cameras and TVs and things consumers use. If BB 10 doesn't have the biggest apps and the largest stores for music and movies and books, then they need to make peoples lives easier and they can't do it alone. They need other companies to buy in and use BB 10.

    First things first. M2M is a terrible abbreviation.
    I prefer "the internet of things" which is used within the academic circles in which I mix.

    I totally agree. I think RIM wants to keep things in house on the mobile front but expanding OS10 or a version of it will need a partner. I see Sony as the best well rounded opportunity.
    Sony?? Maybe you are thinking of the Sony of the past but the Sony of today is a basketcase, there is a reason its credit rating is now just above junk.

    30 Ways QNX Touches Your Life

    Its is a viable business model to get into the feild and monetize later. Looks like QNX is ready to monetize.
    Little known fact. QNX came to RIM not vise versa. The 2 are a match made in heaven!

    Yup, as others have pointed out, Microsoft, Google and Apple are way ahead in this area...

    And QNX adds nothing, absolutely nothing to the equation. You don't need to have the same kernel or OS running for your car or fridge to talk to your phone, lol! We have an awesome thing called protocols, so that problem was solved long ago, and RIM doesn't have an advantage here.

    (Quite the opposite in fact. There are many good reasons why it's a better solution to have two different OS on your computer and in your car, and have them communicate though a common protocol, rather than have the same OS powering two very different kinds of devices)

    QNX seems to work fine with other OS, perhaps you need to talk to apple.

    RIM will be bought out by those big companies sooner or later, its just a matter of time. Look who are in this market: apple, Google, and Microsoft. No other companies can touch them. Samsung is just a hardware manufacturer.
