Better Blackberry Integration in iDrive? RIM buys QNX Software

This could be interesting...

RIM to buy QNX Software from Harmon International

Some assumptions here. Anyone who can confirm or deny, please do so.
Harmon makes the CIC units which I assume would include all iDrive units. I also assume iDrive/CIC runs on QNX software. If so, the future possibilities could be:

1. iDrive gets better seamless Blackberry integration as the news release states (in not so many words).
2. Blackberry apps in iDrive?
3. Not so obvious: QNX builds the next Blackberry OS so your Blackberry looks like iDrive

Any thoughts?

Not much money in supporting and updating old products, unless they have an additional agreement with BMW to support Blackberry. They will be looking to the new generation.
