Who will acquire BlackBerry – Microsoft, Nokia, HP, Samsung, or Amazon?

“What will happen to BlackBerry?” Anton Wahlman writes for The Street. “In brief, it will most likely be acquired. The mobile computing game is too big for the even bigger companies to allow BlackBerry to remain independent.”

Wahlman writes, “BlackBerry has many strong assets that several parties could exploit and integrate into their operations. For starters: 75 million user base, including the valuable large enterprise users. Peanuts for Apple and Google, but material for Microsoft, Amazon, Nokia, HP and Samsung.”

“Who will NOT acquire BlackBerry? I see only two: Apple and Google,” Wahlman writes “They simply wouldn’t get away with it for anti-trust reasons. Both of these companies have to tread lightly, and BlackBerry isn’t worth it for them given their size and resources.”

  1. Rumor on the street has it that BlackBerry, after once again cheating depth, has contacted both Sony and Nokia to form a syndicate and buy Microsoft.

    The plan is to put Windows Surface 8 Mobile and Desktop out of it’s misery once and for all.

    I think it’s a damn good idea.

  2. Apple should acquire Blackberry and port their iOS to it while leaving the physical keyboard, buttons, and trackpad intact. I HATE HATE HATE HATE touchscreens.

    My iPhone works great but that’s when I touch the screen in precisely the correct way. I’m tired of this. Give me an iPhone with a keyboard layout like Blackberry has. Even better, give me an iPhone with a full screen that slides UP with a blackberry keyboard layout and running iOS.
