After continuing to be pummeled in the world of smartphones, Research in Motion is considering another approach—licensing its operating system. “Before you licensed the software, you must show that the platform has a large potential.  First we have to fulfill our promises. If such proof, a licensing is conceivable,” RIM CEO Thorsten told German newspaper Die Welt. While Blackberry 10 is looking to make its debut this month, the licensing would allow for developers to put RIM hardware on other devices. [Source: CNET]
