RIM Recruits iOS Developers for Tech Expansion

In a recent article by John Paczkowski of AllThingsD, a curious job posting at RIM for a senior iOS developer raised eyebrows, prompting questions about the company’s strategy.

RIM clarified that the role is aimed at developing an application to manage iPhone and iPad devices within their BlackBerry Mobile Fusion platform, a suite designed to handle a variety of devices across different operating systems.

The need for such a developer stems from RIM’s initiative to support a broader range of devices, including those running on iOS, within their network management software.

The BlackBerry Mobile Fusion service is intended to provide businesses with a comprehensive tool for overseeing BlackBerry, Android, and now, iOS devices, ensuring seamless connectivity and security across all platforms.
