Keeping in mind the legacy of BlackBerry, there are many potential bidders who express their interest to buy the company.
BlackBerry was here around us for years but the Canadian smartphone manufacturer never could take a bigger bite on the smartphone sales records comparatively than its other more well-known competitors. Now, the debacle of the BlackeBerry 10 devices which was supposed to boost its financials, has pulled the company in the marketplace to get sold.
According to a report of Wall Street Journal, it appears that Lenovo, who had earlier bought IBM’s personal computer division back in 2005, is very much interested to bid for BlackBerry.
If so, it won’t be the first time that the Chinese tech giant has shown its interest in BlackBerry as there were earlier rumors of the same kind during the initial period of this year -a claim which was later denied by Lenovo. This time, the rumors can be taken a little more seriously as Lenovo is also rumored to have been in talks with HTC, assuming that the computer super power is indeed concerned to get into the smatphone business.
The news - still unconfirmed - that Lenovo however may not be the only bidder in this case, as Fairfax Financial has been heard of offering $4.7 billion to BlackBerry which the company has accepted but the deal had fallen apart due to lack of necessary backing.
