    The companies say the deal will shift about 200 BlackBerry employees in Bochum, Germany, to Volkswagen.
    The move comes as the Waterloo, Ont.-based smartphone maker pushes ahead with a plan to become profitable by its 2016 financial year.
    BlackBerry has centralized most of its vehicle connectivity development at its QNX Software Systems division in Ottawa.
    QNX develops technology for cars and trucks, including dashboard systems that connect directly with a driver's mobile phone and outside networks, but is also working on systems for the health care industry and mining companies.
    Volkswagen will assume BlackBerry's leases for offices at the Bochum University Center and the Design Support Lab.

    This does not necessarily sound like a bad thing. No one is losing a job, and QNX is getting in to yet another vehicle!

    You're right, it seems to make sense. Definitely nice that no one is out if work.

    Yep, seems like BlackBerry was closing another office, but managed to find someone who needs a team, and was willing to hire the whole lot.

    This post is logical unfortunately.
    When at least 1 person is curious about an occurence it is considered a mystery.

    I posted it on my BBM Channel last night when the story was a mystery for a few reasons. I also thought CB News and Rumors would be a good spot.
