Which non-american company potentially on BlackBerry 's dance card?
I think the mistrust of US based companies and their links to the NSA, and Chinese companies with their links to the government would preclude the likes of Microsoft, Cisco, Lenovo, etc. of snatching up BlackBerry.
So what about European, Indian, Middle Eastern or South American companies? Off the top of my head, I'm thinking SAP or Tata must be seriously taking a look.
Any others come to mind?

If anyone, probably a European company. SAP is a good choice. Maybe Sage.Rock over London, rock on Chicago. Passport. Work wide.

With the business team JC has put together from ex Sybase and SAP management the most logical answer is SAP. Being European your good to go from an acquisition standpoint! SAP 100% so long as the shareholders stock price is at least $50.00/shr

Well, if the Burger King tax inversion deal is any indicator then a US company could certainly benefit from buying Blackberry and moving its own operations to Canada. It would bring a It would bring a big US company to Canada so the Canadian regulators shouldn't have a problem with it.

SAP is a likely candidate, given John Chen's previous involvement and sale of Sybase to them.
It would certainly be an enterprise only deal, SAP has no consumer sphere reach like Apple, Microsoft, Google or even Lenovo (they've been knocked back once already apparently).
Not sure about Amazon, their data hunger seems a bit contradictory to BBRY's security / privacy business model.
? BlackBerry? I premdict the future's gonna be chenomenal! ?

I don't think SAP is likely only because JC would want something higher than $25 if revenue starts to grow (see his comments about not selling unless it's an offer for 100 a share, obviously sarcasm but just to give some perspective) which would value blackberry at 13 billion or more. SAP's market cap is 12 billion so I'm not sure if they could fit the bill. They could definitely buy them if they shed the hardware business and if blackberry's revenue never increased... however, they're going to need someone who can at least fit the bill
