RIM CEO Thorsten Heins has announced ahead of the official BlackBerry 10 launch event that he has not ruled out licensing BlackBerry 10 to other manufacturers. BlackBerry smartphones have been criticized over the years for poor hardware and software compared to other devices on the market. BlackBerry believes that its new software will address any shortcomings previously plaguing its devices.
Heins said, "Before you licensed the software, you must show that the platform has a large potential. First we have to fulfill our promises. If such proof, a licensing is conceivable." RIM has struggled in recent years and the ability to license its software to other hardware makers could be very beneficial to the company.
BlackBerry 10 is expected to debut later this month. Heins says that the reason the next-generation operating system has been so delayed was because the company was building something for the next decade. We have taken the time to build a platform that is future-proof for the next ten years. Our aim is not only to smartphones, but also to the use, for example, in cars that will be in the future increasingly networked. We see with BlackBerry 10 completely new areas of growth,” he said.
