PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "RIM, the troubled maker of the BlackBerry smartphone, is in talks to hire a financial adviser to help it weigh strategic options, according to four people with knowledge of the matter. A decision to work with at least one bank could come in the next few days, said one of the people, who asked to remain anonymous because the deliberations are private. RIM would prefer an agreement to license its mobile-phone software, and its next choice is a strategic investment, one person said. RIM doesn't plan to sell itself, the person said." So, anyone interested in licensing BlackBerry OS? Anyone...? What if they throw in a free beer...?

It's hard to imagine anyone wanting to license BB OS right now. While I agree that it is quite a bit more secure than iOS and Android, it still feels a generation behind -- BB OS 6 notwithstanding.

Does any of this remind anyone of when Apple tried to license MacOS back in the Power Computing days?
