  • Heins Is Rocking A BlackBerry 10 Device; Reemphasizes BlackBerry 10 Licensing Possibility

    The thought of licensing BlackBerry 10 to other manufacturers has been transforming little by little into what seems to be almost a reality in the near future. Today, RIM CEO Thorsten Heins discussed the issue at hand in an interview with Bloomberg.

    Heins emphasized how possible and likely a licensing agreement could be due to the fact that “QNX is already licensed across the automotive sector." Heins is also reported to be carrying a BB10 device for his personal use, which definitely indicates that the platform is in its final stages of testing.

    Much discussion has been made about this topic. We've talked about the pros, cons and how it could all end up panning out in the future. Unfortunately, nothing has been officially announced and until that changes, it will remain as only a possibility.

    Samsung recently denied again that they have no plans to license BlackBerry 10 on its smartphones. It may seem that RIM doesn't really have any suitors to take on their platform in the smartphone market, but what's to say that's the only market they are looking into?

    We've heard over and over from RIM execs how BlackBerry 10 is more than just a smartphone operating system and how it is a whole platform that extends beyond that into mobile computing.

    RIM doesn't have to make the TV, the computer, or the car for it to run BB10. These are just a couple of areas that BB10 could excel in as, again, a full mobile computing platform.

    Only time will tell, but it seems more and more nowadays that BlackBerry 10 will not be only on RIM made hardware. We still have a little bit to wait for this to be a reality, but we sure are getting more and more excited (read anxious) as more of these reports come out.
