  • Microsoft, Nokia, Amazon All Mulled Bids On RIM

    Microsoft and Nokia discussed potential takeover of RIM sources say. While RIM its self has approached Samsung, and HTC about potentially licensing BB 10. According to sources from the Wall Street Journal talks between Microsoft, Nokia and RIM began months ago while the takeover talks are still unclear its likely that the topic has come to the table at least a few times.

    According to Reuters RIM “turned down takeover overtures” from Amazon because it wanted to fix its problems independently. Rumors of a possible takeover have circulated for some time now and each time shares have surged. After reports said Microsoft and Nokia mulled a joint bid, shares surged as much as 10.2 percent in German trading and as much as 11 percent in New York finishing the day a $12.52.

    Whether rival handset makers like Samsung and HTC would be interested in BB 10 is uncertain. Why would they be? Google gives Android away, they just make profit from advertising and app downloads. That is something we do not see with RIM. Both HTC and Samsung use the Windows 7 OS as well.

    RIM has declined to comment about any takeover talks at this time. They have also declined to comment about possibly abandoning the BlackBerry device to focus on enterprise software and services.
