RIM approached Samsung to license its BlackBerry OS


 

Samsung adopts a multi-OS strategy but apparently the Korean giant didn’t see any value in developing a handset with Research in Motion’s BlackBerry OS. BlackBerry maker reportedly approached mobile phone makers, including Samsung to license its BlackBerry OS but was eventually turned down, according to reports on Reuters and WSJ.

Samsung currently licenses Microsoft’s Windows Phone and Google’s Android OS and also develops on its own bada OS.
