Lenovo Prepares to Bid on BlackBerry

Chinese computer manufacturer Lenovo has reportedly signed a non-disclosure agreement with BlackBerry as it gears up to bid on a possible purchase of BlackBerry. The real oddity of Lenovo gearing up to bid on BlackBerry is that it has virtually no chance to actually make the purchase. Authorities in the US and Canada would likely block any sale of BlackBerry to a company that you could be potentially controlled by the Chinese government.

Lenovo does have some indirect ties to the Chinese government. Forbes figures the reason Lenovo is trying to make a bit all is so officials of the Chinese government can destroy BlackBerry just as they did with Nortel Networks previously. Nortel was reportedly repeatedly hacked by Chinese at the point that the Chinese were able to under bid Nortel at every turn.

Analysts believe that BlackBerry is the one phone Chinese hackers have been unable to crack and therefore they are not believed to have been able to penetrate internal BlackBerry networks. If by some fluke Lenovo was able to purchase BlackBerry, it would potentially give the Chinese government access to everything they need to hack BlackBerry networks.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
