- Could We See BlackBerry 10 On Non-BlackBerry Devices?
  • Could We See BlackBerry 10 On Non-BlackBerry Devices?

    Could this picture end up being a reality sometime in 2012 or 2013? Could we end up seeing BlackBerry 10 on HTC, Samsung and other hardware manufacturers' devices? According to Jefferies' Peter Misek this is definitely not only a possibility but talks have already started to make it happen.

    "We think some of this has already been started with RIM likely agreeing to license Blackberry 10 to Samsung, HTC, and possibly others.This would help create a critical mass for the ecosystem and maintain RIM’s monthly service revenue; however, it puts more pressure on the hardware business in the short term. Longer term, it possibly gets people hooked on the RIM ecosystem and may in fact allow them to sell more BB 10 handsets (if they are able to create compelling handsets)."
    Why would RIM even think about doing this? Well if you think about it, the costs of manufacturing hardware would be cut down as less phones would need to made and they would instead take a more Google-like approach and rent out their OS per say.

    Both HTC and Samsung run Android and WP7 OSes and have been successful doing so. The chance of them taking on another OS with such an uncertain future as the BlackBerry 10 OS could be unlikely. Also the hardware compatibility issue is big one as well as BlackBerry 10 sounds like it'll be a gesture-dependent OS for which who knows if HTC or Samsung could develop hardware.

    That being said, the perspective of having BlackBerry email and BBM as anchors to this new OS could make it very enticing for some of these companies to adopt BlackBerry 10.

    I love rumors, especially during such a slow time of the year with BlackBerry news. We'll see if anything comes out of this one in the near future.
