QNX powered BlackBerry smartphones to be shown off at DevCon!

It's no secret RIM has been working on their next generation smartphones powered by QNX. Today though, during their Q2 Fiscal 2012 Results Announcement Conference Call, both Mike Lazridis and Jim Ballsillie confirmed QNX devices are already in development and come time for DevCon, they will indeed be shown off. Keep in mind, shown off -- does not imply announced. These devices will be development devices. In addition to that, RIM also confirmed a new development platform will be made available -- presumably for QNX devices. Needless to say, the disppointment of not getting PlayBook OS 2.0 until after DevCon hurts but the joy of getting a glimpse at some of RIM's QNX devices gets our blood rushing.
