No surprise here, except that it could be a joint bid. Can three companies now in different stages of failing in mobile team up to win? Do three wrongs make a right?
My favorite part though:
According to two people close to the company, RIM executives have approached other smart-phone makers, including Samsung Electronics Co. and HTC Corp. about licensing RIM’s new operating system.
That’s a joke, right? Those guys would ditch Android for something much worse with absolutely no app ecosystem? And they’d pay for the privilege?
And people wonder why RIM is failing. If that report is true, it’s clearly being run by people who have completely lost touch with reality. Though I guess that’s been pretty evident the past couple of years…
