    Doesn't seem to be realistic.. Both companies are different and distant by light years...

    As long as "Blackberry way" continue to exist and develop, it doesn't matter who funds it... So no, as long as Apple, Google, and MS are not buying them.

    For sure not an Asian company will not get approval from the govt, they could license BB10 to Samsung. But sure besides licensing BB10 to Amazon, Amazon could take a run at RIM
    for a buyout and locking out out any competition provided they would be interested in selling phones.

    Microsoft is my best pick. They'd fit with the business side, and they can easily afford it.

    The "insiders boys club", consisting of Watsa, Balsillie, Lazaradis, Heinz etc own collectively 40+% of the company. Their goal is putting BB10 everywhere QNX currently holds autonomy. No sale will occur and the possibility of a hostile takeover is none.

    I doubt this would ever happen. Facebook occasionally have to put apps on their site because of their money issues. No worries!

    I will sell them my shares for $500/share. I'm sure many other shareholders will.
    Make me an offer.

    I highly doubt that Facebook would try to purchase RIM, especially considering there's absolutely no way that they'd be able to afford it. They just don't have nearly enough cash to purchase RIM outright, and besides, why would they do this? It wouldn't really benefit them in any way that I can think of.
