26 May 2012 - RIM is keeping its messaging service - BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) in house. A report in the Wall Street Journal suggests that RIM was about to license out its popular messaging service to other manufacturers and carriers. It was a way for RIM to generate some revenue and take on third-party IMs like WhatsApp.


The publication reported new CEO Thorsten Heins stepped in and stopped on a possible port to iOS or Android. The WSJ's was told that BBM licensing "was not up for discussion".


Reportedly, Heins is interested in opening up the licensing options for the upcoming BlackBerry 10 OS. 


" RIM akan mengekalkan perkhimatan mesej miliknya iaitu BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) khas untuk BlackBerry sahaja. Satu laporan dari Wall Street Journal menyebut bahawa RIM bercadang untuk melesenkan perkhimatan pesanan BBM kepada syarikat telefon dan rangkaian telekomunikasi lain. Ini adalah satu cara untuk RIM menjana pendapatan dan bersaing dengan perkhimatan permesejan lain seperti WhatsApp. Namun, The Publication melaporkan ketua pegawai operasi yang baru dilantik iaitu Thorsten Heins telah masuk campur dan menghentikan sebarang kemungkinan perlesenan kepada iOS atau pun Android "
