Recently, tech oriented websites keeping an eye on the slightest moves made by the giants in the industry noticed an intriguing job posting on Research in Motion's webpage. The Canadian maker of BlackBerry smartphones was looking earlier this week for developers focused on iOS apps.
The job opportunity was briefly published and online for approximately only 24 hours. The job description was for a long term position available for someone who was interested in creating "exciting applications for distribution on the iOS platform".
The candidates had to have proven experience in iOS apps for iPhone and iPad as well as coding and communication skills.
After news about the job listing surfaced the web and tech writers started to stir rumours about it and make assumptions, RIM issued an explanation.
"In order for BlackBerry Mobile Fusion to perform advanced management functions for iOS devices, RIM will develop an on device client to be included as part of the overall solution," said one RIM official for AllThingsD.
Mobile Fusion is a security software released last year developed to run on iOS and Android devices.
