RIM may make BlackBerry OS open source

“lackBerry has shown signs of getting into the wider ecosystem
by allowing security and management of non BlackBerry devices
through BlackBerry enterprise server, by launching BlackBerry
Mobile Fusion. It has also started supporting Android apps on its
PlayBook tablet.

“Letting others manufacture products based on BlackBerry OS
would be the next logical step for RIM. This will not only bring in
wider choice to consumers; with more BlackBerry devices to choose
from, it will also help it reduce pricing. Right now the cheapest
BlackBerry phone costs around Rs 8,500 while Android phones with
better features and of good quality start at Rs 7,000 in
India.”
