Samsung, world’s leading smartphone maker company that uses Google’s Android OS for most of its phones but they also use Windows OS for selected phones.
But according to a latest report from Reuters “A lack of support from potential partners such as Samsung could mean more trouble for RIM, which is seeking various options to turn around its embattled business.”
“Shares of RIM had risen more than 5 percent early on Wednesday after an influential analyst said it may license the BlackBerry 10 system to Samsung.”
Lee Sei-cheol, an analyst at Meritz Securities told the Reuters that “RIM has already lost its initiative in the smartphone market and what is left doesn’t look really attractive to the likes of Samsung,”
“Should they have a deep patent pool, that might be the most appealing asset to potential acquirers.”
RIM plans to use its new operating system, known as BB10, in a next-generation line of BlackBerrys expected to launch early next year. It is considered RIM’s last hope of reversing BlackBerry’s steady decline in market share.
