Bloomberg: Research In Motion to license BlackBerry 10

RIM to license BlackBerry 10

Bloomberg is reporting that Research In Motion (RIMM) will indeed be licensing BlackBerry 10. Thorsten Heins told Bloomberg earlier today:

“QNX is already licensed across the automotive sector — we could do that with BB10 if we chose to,” Heins, who has begun to carry a BB10 phone for his own use, said in an interview at Bloomberg’s headquarters in New York. “The platform can be licensed.”

If Research In Motion can find a way to license BlackBerry 10 to a smartphone manufacturer, this would be the first time in the company’s history that an outside company would be able to make a smartphone with a BlackBerry operating system, besides that little experiment with BlackBerry Connect and BlackBerry Application Suite that really didn’t materialize a number of years back.
