It has been barely some time when CEO and president of Research in Motion, Thorsten Heins, talked about a possibility that the leading manufacturers of tech-industry may license upcoming Blackberry 10 Operating System.
According to a recent report, Heins did name two tech giants regarding the same possibility and said that Sony or Samsung may license their forthcoming OS.
Heins knows that no matter how hard he tries to keep his future plans regarding BB 10 platform under wraps, media will somehow manage to know about those plans. All eyes are now set on RIM as everyone is interested in watching whether RIM bounces back or this yesteryear leading tech organization comes to grief.
Heins has already mentioned that his company doesn’t possess economy of scale like other leading smart phone manufacturers, so it can’t roll out numerous smart phones within a year. He added that if his company, in future, thinks of following the trend then it will have to rope in other firms who can help RIM to achieve cost advantages.
He meant to say that RIM is certainly keen on launching economical handsets, provided other companies team up with RIM.
Heins already revealed to The Telegraph that his company is looking for more viable options. However, he also made it clear that the company is sticking to its decision of not opting for Android and is looking for alternative feasible plans related to licensing of new BB 10 OS.
Heins also mentioned a prospect that RIM can first come up with its reference system and then can license the same reference system to others, so that they can create a hardware inspired by RIM’s system. The reference system may be Blackberry itself or something which is being created on BB platform. He didn’t divulge more details and said that his company is exploring the possibilities regarding the same and that it will be too early to comment on this subject matter.
The new report, which mentioned that it may be either Sony or Samsung who might license RIM’s upcoming BB OS, also revealed that earlier where RIM was trading shares above $140, they have now come down to $7.25. This just shows how miserable the current condition of RIM is.
On one hand media is bringing forward pessimistic reports about Blackberry, and on the other hand, Heins and other top management members of this Ontario-based company are flaunting their optimism. Heins even didn’t hesitate while declaring that forthcoming BB 10 will prove to be the most radical experience to users in terms of entertainment, utility and gaming.
Heins also confessed that in spite of having an incredible platform like BB OS 7, his company couldn’t keep up with the pace. According to him, the company should keep looking for best viable options in order to regain a strong position in the tech-industry. As far as the future of RIM is concerned, we hope that RIM’s claims about BB10 come true and the company manages to turn up the trumps.
