We know that RIM is not adverse to the idea of licensing out its Blackberry platform. After all given the state that they are in at the moment, having big name manufacturers churn out Blackberry devices could help them cover more market share, but who would be willing? It has been rumored in the past that Samsung might be interested, but according to Mobile Today, it seems that HTC could be a candidate. They quoted HTC’s Director of Product Management for EMEA, Graham Wheeler, who said:
“I don’t have any knowledge but that is not to say we are not looking at it. But from my point of view we are not saying we are closed to a new operating system. We will review each one to make sure it’s the best for our customers.”
Of course this is far from a confirmation that we will be seeing HTC Blackberry devices in the future, but it’s interesting to note that HTC does not seem opposed to the idea. After all, they have created phones that run on both Android and Windows Phone, so creating Blackberry devices will not really be that much of a stretch. What do you guys think? Would you like to see HTC make Blackberry handsets in the future?
