What’s next for BlackBerry after the January 30th launch of BB10?


CEO Thorsten Heins, speaking to German-language magazine Die Welt, says the company is considering several things once BB10 is launched. These include selling off the company’s hardware division, which makes BlackBerry phones. The company might also license out its mobile operating system, like what Microsoft does with Windows Phone, or Google with Android. Another option is licensing out BlackBerry Messenger, which is one of the platforms’ more popular functions, as well as RIM’s enterprise services infrastructure. RIM also could move production of its devices to a third party company.

There is no hurry for any of these, though, says Heins, although these are possible scenarios for RIM moving forward. Right now they are  focused on launching the  BlackBerry 10 platform by January 30th & gaining ground back on other OS’s.

Well what do you think RIM should do with Blackberry?
Would you love to see a BB10 device made by your favorite company making Android or Windows phones presently?
