Rumor Mill: RIM's first QNX smartphone won't support BES

Very little is publicly known about Research In Motion's (NASDAQ:RIMM) forthcoming smartphones running QNX software, the platform that currently powers the company's PlayBook tablet. However, according to the blog Boy Genius Report, RIM's first QNX smartphone has been dubbed the BlackBerry Colt and will have a single-core processor, though this might change (RIM executives have said QNX phones will support dual-core processors). The blog, which did not cite its sources, also said RIM's first QNX smartphones will not support RIM's BlackBerry Enterprise Server, and that users will instead have to rely on Microsoft ActiveSync for email synchronization. RIM is working on a QNX-specific BES solution, according to the report. A RIM spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Article
