RIM may sell its hardware division, license its software after BlackBerry 10 launch

RIM CEO Thorsten Heins talked to German daily newspaper Die Welt about RIM’s future plans after it launches BlackBerry 10. According to the interview, all things are on the table including a sale of RIM’s hardware division and the possible licensing of its software.

Heins isn’t in any rush to ditch the hardware division, but will take the time to mull over options after BlackBerry 10 has officially debuted. “The main thing for now is to successfully introduce Blackberry 10. Then we’ll see,” said Heins. RIM will¬† kick off BlackBerry 10 and announce a handful of new devices at an event scheduled for the end of this month.
