RIM has announced the first phone based on the QNX OS. The Blackberry Colt is seen as the tarnished phone companies hail mary back to a position of influence. The Colt is part of RIM's line of Blackberry 7 devices and will launch in the first quarter of 2012, but in order to make that date, some compromises will have to be made.

RIM has announced that the Colt will launch without Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) support, which effectively means this is not an enterprise level phone, but is squarely targeted at the consumer market. One of the reasons for not support BES is that RIM is still writing the QNX code for integration into BES and some believe RIM will eventually release a QNX-specific BES to work alongside the regular BES.
