RIM Buys QNX

Great writeup from Roger Lanctot of Strategy Analytics on the recent RIM purchase of QNX.

It’s a big move towards automotive from one of the leaders in smartphones (even if it is still more business oriented).

While QNX’s partnership with Alcatel-Lucent promises to target the complete spectrum of in-vehicle connectivity, a partnership with RIM opens up wider market opportunities for both QNX and RIM. The timing of the deal is ideal given that several OEMs participating in volume segments of the market have yet to launch branded, high-profile connectivity solutions. There is still time for a RIM-QNX collaboration capable of helping RIM vault into contention with both Nokia and Apple for automotive connectivity leadership.

There is a lot to keep an eye on here, so you can expect to hear a lot more.  For now, click through and have a read.
