Journalists are once more clamoring to the idea that Samsung might be interested in purchasing BlackBerry. They’ve already announced a strategic partnership for launching BlackBerry Messenger on its independent app store.
However, the partnership may end there. “Samsung Electronics is not considering that opportunity” said Executive Vice President Lee Young-hee about the possibility of Samsung purchasing BlackBerry.
With recent news of BlackBerry considering breaking up BBM into its own company, it could signal that the company seeks to break up its valuable assets into salable parts. If BlackBerry were to sell itself, would you want the first bidder to be Samsung?
