- Former Apple CEO John Sculley Considering Bid For BlackBerry
  • Former Apple CEO John Sculley Considering Bid For BlackBerry

    It seems everyone is thinking about making a bid for BlackBerry these days. Unfortunately for them, only one bid has officially been made, and is still the only one on the table. This deal being, of course, the one led by Prem Watsa's Fairfax Financial, which should be done by November 4th.

    During these last weeks leading up to Nov. 4th though, a lot of interest has been generated from different places. Companies like Samsung, Google, and SAP have been rumored to be considering a bid for BlackBerry, as well as BlackBerry's former co-founders, who were also discussed as mulling over a deal to reacquire the company. Unfortunately though, no deal as of yet.

    This evening, the Globe and Mail have published a report indicating Apple's former CEO, John Sculley, is joining the pool of those "considering" a bid for BlackBerry as well. According to G&M, Sculley, pictured above next to a young Steve Jobs, would join up with other Canadian partners in an attempt to acquire the smartphone pioneer.

    Sculley is an admitted "long-time BlackBerry fan and user," and he believes there's still a lot left in the tank for BlackBerry, and whoever acquires the company needs to know what to do with it.

    "The only thing I would say is, I think there’s a lot of future value in Blackberry, but without experienced people who have run this type of business, and without a strategic plan, it would be really challenging ... Whoever buys it would have to have a strategic plan that was credible and could succeed, and they would want to have an experienced team that would be able to implement that plan."

    Let's see if John Sculley and co. make an official bid, and find a way to put the money together for it. It would definitely be interesting to hear what he has in mind for BlackBerry, and its future.
