RIM To Potentially License BB10 To Samsung and Sony

Posted Aug 2, 2012

Research In Motion will be releasing the BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system in 2012.  RIM CEO Thorsten Heins said that RIM will be exploring licensing agreements with companies like Samsung and Sony according to Telegraph UK.  This could definitely help increase BlackBerry’s market share.

Heins also said that they are also tweaking the upcoming BlackBerry 10 handset to ensure a smoother user experience.  Since RIM would be offering lower priced BB10 phones from third-party manufacturers, they would be able to expand their new operating market share at a faster pace.

Heins also said that RIM will not be switching to a different operating system like Android or Windows Phone.  Heins said that if they went with Android, it would be hard to different their products.  Good call.
