BlackBerry maker Research In Motion may plan to develop applications for Apple’s iPhone.

The company is reportedly recruiting for a developer to do just that, advertising internally for the post. "As part of a newly-created team, you’ll influence the development and design of BlackBerry software," the recruitment message reads, according to AppleInsider.

"This is a very confidential brand new team and a senior position within RIM so I can't provide too many details. I guess you can figure out what it might be about though," the message continues.

The report claims Mac development in Cocoa and Objective C and Javascript and XML development experience are regarded as essential experiences for the winning candidate.

The report speculates RIM may simply be planning to make Blackberry push email accessible using an iPhone.
