    Well of all the suggestions about who could or should buy BlackBerry I think this one is unique. Sure, in the past people have suggested that Nokia buy BlackBerry, but nobody has (to my knowledge) suggested it since....Till ZNet said:
    But here's a thought who has a great phone brand they can use any time after 2015 but no team to build phones? Maybe Nokia will snap up BlackBerry to have another bite at the smartphone market itself
    haha it's an interesting idea; & I must admit, if I wanted anyone else to build BlackBerry hardware it would be Nokia because they do (usually) build good quality hardware. Imagine the patent portfolio Nokia would get out of this. M$ is only buying a few of Nokia's patents. Most of that 2.2 Billion was to license their patents for 10 years. purchased 8,500 design patents & is licensing 30,000 utility patents

    Anyway. Just to be clear I am not saying that I think this will happen, or that it should happen. I just thought I would see what people in the forum thought of it's merits. What do you think of the idea? advantages/disadvantages

    Nokia's agreement with Microsoft prevents Nokia from being in the smartphone business for the next 30 months (2.5 years). BB's fate will long be decided before then.

    That's an excellent point. I really hope there's still a BlackBerry in 2.5 years. I want a Q11 with wireless charging (or some sort of charging pod contacts) & 802.11ac....and that's about the only hardware enhancements I care about. my phone's fast enough without having 8 cores
