HTC does not exclude the possibility of ​​creating a BlackBerry 10 smartphone

A HTC smartphone equipped with the operating system BB10 hypothesis is less likely than you might imagine, according to a statement from Graham Wheeler, director of product management for EMEA of HTC. Although no lack of explicit confirmations about it, the manager of HTC has not ruled out the possibility of using the new operating system from RIM alongside with Android and Windows Phone 8.
The effective operation of the device remains on the level of mere conjecture, but the statements of Wheeler, show a willingness to continue to diversify the supply of smartphones using different operating systems.
The statements date back a few days ago and have not been subsequently disproved.In order to avoid misunderstandings about the content of the statements, we brought in an integral manner:
"I don’t have any knowledge, but that is not to say we are not looking at it," Wheeler said. "From my point of view we are not saying we are closed to a new operating system. We will review each one to make sure it’s the best for our customers."
Summing up the thought of Wheeler, can not be excluded that HTC is already assessing the feasibility of creating device that will use BlackBerry 10 OS .
HTC and RIM are both trying to regain lost market share in the smartphone industry.BlackBerry 10 is an operating system characterized by a remarkable potential and is not to exclude the possibility that RIM exploit it also, by licensing. HTC might find in RIM's mobile platform an important tool to differentiate its line-up. If the company decides to actually use BB10, would have an advantage over other competitors like Samsung, which has already ruled out this possibility, and LG, which reaffirmed its commitment to the Android platform. Not necessarily, of course, that the choice of BB10 will actually winning, as it is everything to prove that the Taiwanese company actually decides to license the use of BB10.
As mentioned at the beginning, beyond the possible implications for the future evolution of the line-up HTC, statements such as Wheeler show the constant search for a way to overcome the crisis that even a strong line-up of Android smartphones like the One series wasn't able to eliminate it altogether.
