"The Canada-based smartphone maker, known for the private handling of its mobile device software business, now has decided to open its doors gradually to the developer community, with its upcoming BlackBerry 10 Native SDK starting the wave of several open source codes.

"'One of the biggest complaints I heard when I joined the company was from developers who said you know I can?t use open source on Blackberry OS and that means it takes longer to write code for Blackberry and makes it more expensive,' said Alec Saunders, VP of Developer Relations at RIM.
