RIM may make BlackBerry OS open source
Research In Motion, which makes BlackBerry phones, may be looking at making the operating system open, which will allow other manufacturers to make smartphones using the platform.
"We get a lot of offers to make BlackBerry operating system open for other manufacturers to manufacture phones based on this OS. But we are yet to take a call on that," said Carlo Chiarello, senior vice president, smartphone business at RIM.
Though he did not confirm it directly, the key thing here is that there is no denial from him. Please note that today, RIM and Apple are the only companies that make their own smartphones and have their own mobile operating systems. Samsung also makes a few phones on its Bada platform, but makes phones on Android and Windows Phone too.
