According to IntoMobile, a Research in Motion VP, over a breakfast event this morning at DEVCON 2010, confirmed that the QNX operating system that runs on the the BlackBerry PlayBook will eventually replace BlackBerry OS running on BlackBerry smartphones.  We pondered last week if BlackBerry 6 was actually the next-gen BlackBerry OS or a stop-gap until the real next deal comes out.  The time scale on such a move however is probably not as near term as we would like as BlackBerry 7 would probably be the BlackBerry OS stepping stone into the QNX based BlackBerry OS.
