Ever since Thorsten Heins talked about the possibility of licensing BlackBerry 10 to other manufacturers,
everyone has pretty much wondered who the heck could be a potential partner to RIM?
Samsung has been rumored to be considering running BlackBerry 10 on their devices in the future, or at least they were until they pretty much dismissed that notion back in January
... and then again in August.
Another viable candidate for licensing BlackBerry 10 could be HTC. The Taiwanese company's director of product management Graham Wheeler was quoted with regards to BlackBerry 10 as saying:
"‘I don’t have any knowledge, but that is not to say we are not looking at it. But from my point of view we are not saying we are closed to a new operating system. We will review each one to make sure it’s the best for our customers."
Basically he's saying, we're not not
looking at BlackBerry 10.
HTC currently makes Android, obviously, and Windows Phone powered devices. Obviously Samsung is Android's darling, while Nokia and Microsoft are pretty happy with their new flagship Lumia devices as well. This leaves HTC caught making devices for two OSes that don't really like them as much.
HTC, like RIM, has been struggling lately to compete and distinguish themselves from other Android powered devices,
so it wouldn't be so strange to see them want a new boost and new life breathed into their lineup with BlackBerry 10.
