Not sure what you imply by "Annnnnnnnnnnd" ? ;-)

Well given that it's from Cisco, there was a reason to suspect that they might be using QNX, which would have been very exciting, at least to me.
Whether it was or not, you didn't say, which is why I said annnnnnnnnd?

Where did you find one for $99?

You should be able to load your own programs on soon, I beleive the NDK was announced at the BlackBerry Developer Conference a few weeks ago.

There was a Rim/Blackberry conference in San Francisco. To just see the exhibits (and eat lunch) it was $99. But you got a Playbook.

Of course BBX will *not* replace QNX. RIM just noticed that it's a bit stupid to have the "BlackBerry Tablet OS" (which is QNX plus RIM-specific extensions) on their future phones. That's why they searched for a new name. They couldn't use QNX, because RIM's platform is QNX plus some stuff that's only available for RIM (and some parts *may* become part of standard QNX in the future). So they decided for "BBX" - short for BlackBerry on QNX.

can I really download Momentics for Windows for free?

No, you can download the NDK, not Momentics. Although there are similarities, there are also big differences. The most important one is a legal one: The NDK is only for developing BBX applications. Using it for anything else, especially non-BlackBerry, but QNX-specific commercial deployment, would be illegal.
