RIM CEO Torsten Heins says BlackBerry 10 might be licensed

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
