Research In Motion Reveals More Details About Its QNX Operating System

The BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (RIM) has revealed new details about the upcoming QNX mobile operating system.

RIM provided these details to the tech website TechRadar covering many of the phones new functions and the company’s official stand on the availability of the product.

Carlo Chiarello, the vice president of GSM/UMTS business unit, RIM said that BlackBerry had already started working on developing the prototype models of the QNX based devices.

"That [QNX] experience is going to start to come in to our high tier products. I can't tell you when; I'm not allowed to. But it's absolutely part and parcel of what we're working on now,” said Chiarello.

"I can tell you that it's going to come in to the higher tier value propositions first. It'll probably come into an all-touch first, more than likely… but I can't tell you timings specifically. But it looks marvellous," he added.

Though the company is yet to make an official confirmation on the issue, the rumor is that RIM intends to launch the QNX BlackBerry phones by the end of 2012. Previous comments have already said that the QNX operating system will run multi-core smartphones.
