RIM now rushing to bring QNX-based BlackBerry to market in Q1 Earlier this month, RIM announced its new BlackBerry 7 lineup, including new Torch devices and the BlackBerry Bold 9900.
According to BGR, the company is now rushing to push its QNX-based "BlackBerry Colt" to the market in the Q1.

The QNX devices will be the first dual-core BlackBerrys on the market, at a time when other manufacturers are looking to build quad-core devices.

Even though it will likely kill the device before it even launches, the source says RIM is working on a QNX-specific BlackBerry Enterprise Server, and that the first phone will not have native support for BES, one of BlackBerry's only remaining selling points.

However, not all is lost as users can run Microsoft ActiveSync out of the box.
