RIM is apparently looking to hire iOS developersRIM’s Blackberry devices used to be a favorite among enterprise customers due to its secure nature and also the ability for companies to manage the data passed through the phones, but with RIM’s declining smartphone platform market share which has seen been overshadowed by iOS and Android, it looks like RIM might be trying to get their hitch a ride on their bandwagons through the introduction of enterprise apps.

This has been revealed through a LinkedIn job listing which outed that the company is seeking a “Senior iOS Mobile Developer” who will “create exciting enterprise applications for distribution on the iOS platform”, and at the same time needs to be “capable of architecting, designing, developing and testing complex applications for iPhone and iPad devices”. The listing has since been removed and has left us wondering what exactly does RIM have in mind for iOS?

If you have been following the rumors, you might have come across some in the past that has suggested that RIM could be looking at porting BBM over onto non-Blackberry devices, so that’s a possibility albeit rather slim. So, what do you guys think RIM might be up to?
