    it would be something to see if, it does happens.

    Blackberry connect on windows mobile phones, that actually function like a real blackberry not just email and browsing. windows mobile has a pretty good market share. But the same goes with other blackberry connect devices. know a lot of people with nokia smartphones that are just dying to get a fully functional BB connect software, I mean with BBM and everything. I was a windows mobile user, I use a blackberry, and loving it, but I also love windows mobile devices, it's doesn't have the most user friendly interface, but it is hard to find other phones that are more powerful, in my opinion.

For one, the entire thing would have to go through the government and with Rim being worth as much as they are it would be the one of the biggest acquisitions in history. Two, since RIM is a Canadian based company, the Canadian government would get involved also - making it more hell. He said Microsoft's only possible chance of taking over RIM would be with a brute force buyout (Meaning Microsoft goes in and throws around enough money to where everyone collapses and gives in).

    He then continued to say it is more likely that RIM take over Microsoft's mobile department than Microsoft take over RIM's mobile department.

    On a side note and being Canadian, our Government would only gift wrap RIM for Microsoft. There would be no resistance. Too many cases now where the Government has not stepped in and done anything.

    This would be the end of RIM as we know it, I for one would definitely have nothing else to do with it if Microsoft were involved, their products stink.

    RIM is one of the biggest companies in Canada as of right now though isn't it? That's like Canada committing mass suicide Lol.

    I might be wrong though, I'm just basing it off of how big RIM is.
