With RIM bleeding profits and employees, how does the company plan to tide itself over past the seemingly endless delays of BlackBerry 10? Speaking to ABC News, Google’s Director of Android User Experience Matias Duarte floated an interesting idea, saying "if RIM wanted to work on Android devices, I would really welcome that. They clearly make great physical keyboards."
The odds that RIM would move into Android handsets is extremely unlikely — while Android apps can run emulated on RIM hardware, CEO Thorsten Heins has adamantly rejected the idea of becoming an OEM for Google's platform. Still, the thought of running Jelly Bean on a sleek new BlackBerry phone has our imaginations wandering.
