“Absolutely not, as far as I know,” Kuhn said in an interview last month with Staff Reporter Gabe Nelson. Kuhn’s reply came in response to the question: “QNX changed hands a couple of times in the last decade, and BlackBerry doesn’t have the market strength it had in 2010. Is QNX for sale?”

Replying to the question, the executive said BlackBerry’s leadership is actually “pressuring” him to expand the business. QNX is hiring more staff and winning more and more contracts. Kuhn said they are working to better their software and services for the IoT (Internet of Things), adding they have created a fully connected car system for the auto industry.

On the company’s IoT services, the executive said they provide over-the-air updates, data collection with analytics and also remote diagnostics. Commenting on the competition in the field, Kuhn said many companies are offering the services in “pieces,” but Blackberry is offering it “completely end to end.”
