by: AdrianOctober 30, 2012

RIM’s CEO says BlackBerry 10 will beat Windows Phone 8; Android and iOS are too tough to compete with

by: ŠtefanSeptember 26, 2012
Research in Motion, remember those guys? They're hard at work on their next generation operating system, which they're calling BlackBerry 10. Yesterday the company showed the world a sneak peak of what it's going to look like, and we've got to admit, it does look rather interesting.

Is there a chance HTC will license BB10? Maybe.

by: Andrew GrushSeptember 11, 2012
In order to try and crawl out of the huge financial hole it's creating for itself, RIM recently announced a new strategy: it will attempt to license out its QNX-based OS to other phone companies and even automotive and computer developers. At the same time, RIM said they would still make their own line of BB10-based Blackberries. The talks about licensing soon lead to speculation that Samsung might be interesting in buying or licensing out the BB10 OS for future products, which Samsung quickly shot down. So Sammy might not be interested in licensing, but HTC might.
