For fans of RIM’s Blackberry platform, you guys are probably aware that Blackberry 10 devices are expected to make an appearance in the near future. However with the struggles that RIM is currently facing, many believe, including RIM themselves, that licensing the Blackberry 10 platform might be the way to go. In a recent interview with Bloomberg, RIM’s CEO Thorsten Heins revealed that the company believes its Blackberry 10 platform can be licensed.
He stated that since Blackberry 10 is based on QNX which is already being used in cars, nuclear plants and military drones, it would not be a stretch of the imagination if Blackberry 10 could be licensed out as well. Heins did not reveal as to which companies they were looking to license the platform out to, although it has been rumored in the past that Samsung could be interested, although those rumors were quickly shot down by Samsung later on. Either way it will be interesting to see other manufacturers roll out Blackberry 10 devices in the future and the sort of features they will be introducing as well.
