BlackBerry's Mulling Selling Itself

By Sam Gibbs on at

This doesn't come as a surprise to many of us, but apparently BlackBerry's looking at "strategic alternatives" including "possible joint ventures, strategic partnerships or alliances, a sale of the company or other possible transactions".  Anyone want to buy BlackBerry? Any takers?

Something tells me that at the end of all this, BlackBerry might end up being a services company, rather than a mobile phone manufacturer. BBM could have been the golden goose, but considering WhatsApp is going from strength-to-strength, and even Google's got Hangouts going, maybe it's a bit late? Who knows. [The Guardian]
