    If you are welling to secure android open source

    And you need to run away from BlackBerry os 10

    Then
    Make it open source and see the results, then secure it, use it.

    QNX (some of it) was open sourced before BlackBerry came along....

    They are not going to make BB10 open sourced. There is just no benefit in doing that, and it would be a big security issue for existing enterprise customers.

    You can take what's open sourced, and make it secure, while not making your changes open sourced. You can't take an OS built on security, make it open sourced, and maintain that security.

    Besides, who would use it, and how would BlackBerry profit from it?

    It's not even that. See Linux it is an open source .. but it is also implemented and sold on big guy servers and it is the best for security and encryption, development.

    Thing is mobile OS is not like an OS built for PC and Laptops. Linux was also born as an open platform so the developer who embraced on the first place developed his security from scratches following that scenario.

    That can't be possible on a mobile device and/or vice versa.

    What BlackBerry needs are serious investors less more of a Gordon Gekko with love and passion for the brand and definitely never a chinese.

    Selling cheap to everyone on a controversial and particular device... ...What type of policy is that?

    Selling the best around the market only to who I want to and I prefer to is speaking.

    See what Thorsten was trying and actually achieved on on only a year.

    Never forget what grandma used to say.

    "China wants to eat your lunch!"

    So it's better to just let it die slowly? Android is open source so I don't see the problem.

    OP, If you can write a micro kernel to replace QnX and write the drivers, it might just be a goer.

    I don't think many of you understand fully what it means to be open source. As well, doubting the security that is BlackBerry 10 and QNX thinking the source code could be compromised by simply showing the technique.

    Open source merely means to be open and transparent with the code. I.E. We're allowed to see the source code. It doesn't even require that BlackBerry gives the OS away for free.

    And lastly, if BlackBerry was truly as secure as we all like to say, then showing off the code, the technique, the inner workings shouldn't make the OS any less secure. In fact, if there were any people with some good ideas that could better the OS they code inform BlackBerry development. If anything, making BlackBerry 10 open source would be best for the OS.

    Let's be real about this.

    The major issue here is that BB10 is based off QNX (great RTOS btw!) which is one of the most deployed embedded OSes outside of Telecom (think STBs, Cars, Pace-makers etc. in absurdum).

    There are not benefits of making this open source by means of stability (sure want that for your pace-maker, right?), support contracts and for the end-users of these devices.

    I'm pretty sure that BlackBerry would have to release their keys they use to sign the bar files with in order to open source it, correct me if I'm wrong. I doubt that's ever going to happen.

    Wrong.
