    New Operating System for Medical Devices

    QNX OS for Medical 1.1 is important because it has been built to comply with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 62304 medical device standard. This is significant because the same standard is accepted in both the United States and the European Union. The fact that the OS has been certified for IEC 62304 saves medical device manufacturers a lot of time and money, because they do not have to recertify that part of their product design. QNX has done the hazard and risk analysis, and has security features built into the OS. The system also supports graphic displays, touch screen input, and video capture.

    If only it was that easy. Mind you, getting these back orders filled should be priority number one.

    You would think that would be pretty easy to discover who the source is. Or the capacitive keyboards.

    I might buy BBRY again if I could figure that one out. I love my Passport, and I think they could have a real hit on their hands IF this is something they can actually make at real scale.

    The screen feels like it would be the biggest limiting factor if they are trying to scale this beyond a few hundred thousand units.

    I keep hearing that and that makes little to no sense to me. The screen is manufactured using a scaleable process (all smartphones technically have their own unique dimensions), As long as raw materials are available the time to Channel should be short. I would have greater concerns over the unique SS chassis and capacitive keyboard assembly....more so the chassis

    Any news from the technology forum in Hong Kong that Chen was supposed to speak at? It was to start at 3:30pm their time and it's now 7:30pm there.

    Why John Chen?s Happy You Can?t Buy a BlackBerry Passport - Bloomberg

    It’s a good thing that some people can’t buy BlackBerry Ltd. (BBRY)’s Passport phone, Chief Executive Officer John Chen said. That means it’s popular.

    Shortages of the business-focused smartphone show that efforts to turn around the money-losing company, formerly known as Research In Motion Ltd. (BB), are taking hold, Chen told an MIT Enterprise Forum event today in Hong Kong. Demand for the phone -- the first device released since Chen took charge in November -- has exceeded the Canadian company’s expectations.

    “I’m glad to have inventory issues. It shows that people want the phone,” said Chen, 59. “We took a very conservative approach and didn’t order too many.”

    In his attempt to return the company to profitability by 2016, Chen is focusing on products such as the BlackBerry Blend feature that appeals to corporate customers because it helps them merge work and personal information. BlackBerry’s smartphone shipments sank to 13.7 million units last year from 52.3 million in 2010, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, as it struggled to compete with touch-screen devices produced by Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Samsung Electronics Co.

    ’Being Sexy’

    The Passport sold 200,000 units in the first two days, selling out in six hours on BlackBerry’s website and within 10 hours on Amazon.com. The square-shaped smartphone is designed for business users who write e-mails, study spreadsheets and read documents on their phones.

    BlackBerry was focused on the 30 percent of the market that sees their phones as a tool, not as an entertainment portal, Chen said. “That is not a space that we can afford to be in now. Being sexy and being a workhorse are two different things,” he said.

    Chen, a Hong Kong native, said he doesn’t yet have a strategy for expanding into China. The company got 16 percent of its sales from the Asia-Pacific region during the fiscal year that ended in March, compared with 19 percent from the U.S., according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Chen said he hopes to get ideas when he attends the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Beijing next month, his first trip to the country as CEO.

    “China is too big a market to ignore,” Chen said. “It is clear that BlackBerry needs to and should be in that market.”

    Seems that the market is bouncing back. BlackBerry leading the charge!

    Hopefully we see a continued run up into November's big BES12 event
    Maybe some updated subscriber and Passport numbers that day, and a Classic launch?

    I really wish Chen worded this a different way. If he isn't going to give specific numbers (like the 200,000 in a couple hours) then he should've just said demand is far greater than what our forecast was. It makes it seem like they barely made any.

    “We took a very conservative approach and didn’t order too many.”

    Hmm, not sure about this statement. Sometimes being a workhorse can be quite sexy...
