The new BlackBerry Tablet OS has been built upon the QNX Neutrino microkernel architecture, one of the most reliable, secure and robust operating system architectures in the world.
Neutrino has been field hardened for years and is being used to support mission-critical applications in everything from planes, trains and automobiles to medical equipment and the largest core routers that run the Internet. The new BlackBerry Tablet OS leverages and builds upon the proven strengths of this architecture to support a professional grade tablet experience.
The Neutrino-based microkernel architecture in the BlackBerry Tablet OS delivers high scalability, Common Criteria EAL 4+ security and support for industry standard tools that are already familiar to hundreds of thousands of developers. The OS is fully POSIX compliant, enabling easy portability of C-based code, supports Open GL for 2D and 3D graphics intensive applications like gaming, and will run applications built in Adobe Mobile AIR as well as the new BlackBerry WebWorks app platform (which will allow apps to be written to run on BlackBerry PlayBook tablets as well as BlackBerry smartphones with BlackBerry 6). The BlackBerry Tablet OS will also support Java, enabling developers to bring existing BlackBerry 6 Java applications to the BlackBerry Tablet OS environment.
