I don't think it would be a wise move. There's too many OS for various photo-computer phones now and profit margins are so low that sales would have to be huge. At this point, I believe it would be too much of a hurdle in trying to revive BB's RIM and it's closed, proprietary base isn't appealing . If Canon were to dabble toes in the market with a photography emphasis, which might be a good decision in looking how things are evolving, probably best to go with the open, linux based droid system.

With the value of BB's stock right now, it might be profitable to buy the company and then dump its operating system in favor of something else.
